Huntsville again

I have been burning up the highway between Huntsville and St. Louis this summer.  I drove home again  for another quick trip.  This one was really quick.  I left at 6:30 Friday morning and got home for a late lunch and some quality time with the Calvert family.  I was so excited to see Jess, Ben, and Parker!
I hate that I won't get to see them again until Christmas but still glad I got some time to hang with you guys. Parker was only 10 days old when I got to see him. His eyes were closed most of the time so I chose to annoy him and get these aggravated faces out of him.  I think he just wanted to be left alone to sleep and not be poked and prodded.

Saturday was party central.  I had a baby shower and 2 weddings to attend.
It was great to be able to celebrate and see friends while I was at home even if it was brief.  Unless you were at a wedding then I didn't get to see you.  Life was just that crazy!
Sunday after the early service I hit the road back to STL.  I pulled in just in time to unload the car, sit for a few minutes and then head out again.  My church here had a picnic for seminary students.  It was so good to be able to interact with the pastors, their wives and some of the elders.  Plus, I got to hang out with some of the great seminary folks and dinner was free!

This is the first full week of school. Looking forward to getting settled in to a schedule.  PLUS...I have a job!  I'll  be working at a progressive care retirement community.  It is owned by the same group that runs the one in Jones Valley.  Yay for employment!

Seriously SP and NL look like brothers right now!

Hey MM! that was a fun weekend! We'll probably never have 2 weddings on the same day, with all the same people, ever again. Cute picture of us, by the way.

Love you!
