Time Flies ... When You're Busy (and having fun)

Almost to ... Boston.

When I sit down on the MegaBus bound for South Street Station tomorrow night, I will sleep.  And sleep.  And probably need to be woken up when we arrive in Boston.

Didn't get to sleep until quite late at the retreat on Tuesday night/Wednesday morning -- high school senior boys will cause that.  Yet, I would not trade my experiences from the St. Ray's retreat for an extra hour or four of sleep.  

My small group - and seemingly the entire retreat - were young men of incredibly depth and insight.  They have faced extraordinary obstacles; however, seeing the pride in their eyes when they talked about a dream of being the first to graduate college in their families was amazing.
