so. we are counting down the days (4 to be exact) until nick can do really cool things like baptize babies, and lead a session and serve communion, and say things like, “i now pronounce you husband and wife”. oh also until until he gets to wear his super cool black robe, which will we will most definetaly get a photo of!
BUT, until that day comes, (which on a more serious note – has been a LONG time coming, and we are so thankful for the prayers and support of all of those around us!) i’ll bore you with some random things from our past few weeks.
a few weeks ago i drove north a bit for my first experience with the might wallace wade stadium.
i was able to take in the fsu vs. duke game with nick’s dad, don. although fsu won, we had a great time and i was pretty impressed with the stadium. and the thing that both nick and his dad never fail to remind me of is that wallace wade was the host of the 1942 rose bowl, which was also commemorated by this plaque. if you are interested, believe me, both don and nick would love to tell you more about it.
i’m not sure if i’ve mentioned it on the blog or not, but i love the calypso skies. they are awesome. take a look.
and one more thing… we had a first halloween in calypso which was rather rainy. this however did not stop the trick-or-treaters! we had a great turn-out. and i even got a picture with one of my favorite’s christopher. i accidently thought he was a storm trooper. he quickly told me he was darth vader. my bad.
