I took our good digital camera to church a few weeks ago to help take directory photos. I was using the tri-pod, trying to take pictures without a flash (since the flash quit working months ago). Wouldn't you know that I wasn't paying attention - and the camera crashed lens-first to the floor, shattering the glass lens filter. Luckily, nothing more appears to have been damaged but I do need to buy a new filter and try and find a flash repair solution. <sigh>2.) Ribbon Cutting
Scott, my brother Tim, and I traveled to Kearney for the afternoon on February 12th. My parents' business celebrated the official ribbon cutting of a 19,000 SF addition to their business, complete with the Chamber of Commerce, mayor, and lieutenant governor in attendance. Tim and I are on the board of directors so we, along with our older brother Mark, got to use ceremonial scissors to help cut the ribbon. After a few hours of mingling and appetizers, we were back on the road and home by 10 PM.
3.) House Closing
This past Thursday, The New People officially closed on their sale of our ol' Grant Street house. We were able to walk through the Grant Street house a few weeks ago to really say goodbye. Who knows if the new guy that relocated from Memphis will let us stop by? To celebrate their new role as "Not the New People Anymore," Kevin and Sara invited us to their beautiful new home last night for a delicious lasagna dinner. We were entertained by 2-year-old Bennett who sang some songs for us while beating a toy drum with a Tinkertoy. Such fun!
"Goodbye"4.) Picture Show
This past Tuesday, we enjoyed pizza and a picture show with the Camps. Marita and Carl hosted us, nephews Pete (and Karly), Andrew, Pat (and Kathleen) along with Kathleen's dad and brother (Tim and Jimmy.) We were treated to a digital slideshow of Kathleen's favorite wedding photos. The newlyweds are coming up on their 6-month anniversary (and still seem to be on cloud 9.) We also got to see photos of Andrew's recent adventure in Chile, where he spent a week hiking and exploring. It was such a fun evening!
5.) Meet Me in St. Louis
Now here we are - it's 2PM on a Saturday and we still haven't figured out what to do this weekend. Tomorrow, I'll be in St. Louis for a work-related tradeshow (flying in and back the same day) so we're hoping to get something accomplished yet today. Check back soon to see if we were successful!
Stay Tuned for Our Next Adventure!
