We're off to Florida tomorrow for the summer! We hope to post regularly to keep you updated. We'll be there from May 29 until August 9. Then we're off to the Eastern Shore of Virginia to visit Mary's family for a few weeks. And by then, we will be ready to tackle the Holy Mountain of Sewanee again! Don't worry, we're taking our Sewanee Angel with us.
After being away from Sewanee for a week, Caroline was going through "Hay-ee" withdraw. Since both moms were scheduled to work at PMO (Parents' Morning Out), Chad promised them a big adventure. We walked, and walked, and walked some more.
I'll let the pictures speak for themselves. How are we going to separate these two for a whole summer???
Wonder where these Krazy Krouse Kids get it from? Here's a recently discovered photo of Daddy at age 6--taken in May 1986--preaching in the living room. Notice the stole? He made it in Sunday School Class!!!
Daddy is krazy, but he's going to be a preacher-man.
At least for the School of Theology's Commencement Service this was absolutely true. We were blessed to have both the Presiding Bishop of The Episcopal Church as well as retired Archbishop of Cape Town and Nobel Laureate Desmond Tutu as the speaker.
Pictured here: Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Presiding Bishop Katherine, and me. I served as a Sacristan for the service and I was lined up in the Procession in front of the clergy. I couldn't resist getting a photo with these two.
Fellow Sacristan Stephen Carson from Texas. Stephen is a classmate of mine and the Carson family are good friends with the Krazy Krouse Kids.
Here, the "Arch" preaches inside beautiful All Saints' Chapel at the University. Photo is from The Tennessean Newspaper.
That's right, it's just a tale. This NEVER happened boys and girls, so please don't try this at home.
So the other day we were returning from a Graduation Party, and when we opened our front door, we discovered a little baby Ringneck Snake coiled up. Mary instantly screamed and I lunged for the snake. (Note: these are not poisonous snakes!)
Now, of course, the downside to this is that Caroline recently picked up a coiled root in the driveway that, yes, resembled a snake.
The black lab next door, a.k.a. "daa-wg," is always great for entertainment value. Every time she hears her barking, she immediately tells us, "daa-wg." Caroline is getting braver too. Now, she's letting the dog lick her fingers--she laughs whenever the labby does this.
We've been wanting to get rid of this basketball goal post for some time. Please note Mom: we did not encourage her to drink this rather stagnant water that has been sitting in the base for a couple of days. Caroline simply thought it would be "fun."
