Sorry it’s been so long since we’ve updated this thing. I assure you I’ve thought about it, I just haven’t gotten around to it. So you may wonder why I’m getting around to it on a Tuesday morning. Shouldn’t I be in class? Well, normally, yes, but the seminary has this magical time in the middle of the semester called reading week, where all classes are cancelled and everyone gets a chance to catch up. Or at least that’s the idea. I’m doing my best to prepare for next week. The third installment of my seemingly never ending set of theology papers is due on Monday, this time on Augustine and Pelagius, and my Old Testament midterm is on Tuesday. So it really is a blessing to have lots of time to prepare for both of those.
In other news…we lost again in flag football. I think maybe it has something to do with our carolina blue shirts, or the fact that the team that beat us this week actually camped out on the field before the game so they could be there early to practice. Needless to say, flag football here is a little intense. And to make things worse, Wake got absolutely waxed by Maryland. Isn’t basketball season almost here?
TBD (that's our team name) breaking the huddle.
The football losses aside, this past weekend was great. My parents made the trip up from Winston and we got to show them around a little bit. They got here Friday afternoon and we went out to lunch and then over to the seminary for a quick tour. We also wandered around Princeton University and Nassau street as well. Sarah cooked a wonderful dinner and dessert for us Friday night, but we were all so full afterwards that we went to bed early.
Sarah's Brownie Trifle
Saturday morning my parents braved the cold to watch my 9am flag football game, and then we took to exploring some of the more historic sites around Princeton…
The historic Morven House
…which included Princeton Battlefield, from the Revolutionary War, and the Morven House, former home of a signer of the Declaration of Independence and now home to a museum celebrating Princeton and the 225th anniversary of Princeton as the nation’s capital for five months in 1783.
Later that day, my mom and Sarah went grocery shopping (mom’s treat!, which means, among other things, I got a real box of Cherrios!) and my dad treated me to some golf. It was the first time I’ve played since I’ve been up here, and I can’t say that I played very well, but it was a great to get back on the golf course, especially since we can see the golf course from our apartment complex. We topped off the weekend with a nice dinner at Houlihan’s. My parents left early Sunday morning to get back to Winston.
But now, it’s back to reading for me and work for Sarah. I hope everyone reading this is well.
