Vacation is awesome. For the last three weeks, we've been on the road, taking Lydia to see friends and family we don't get to see as often as we used to. First, we spent a week in Colorado visiting Audrey's grandparents and aunts, uncles, and cousins. Then, we went to Walburg for a week to see my family, and as many of you know, to have a family reunion. I also got a chance to preach in Walburg. Here's the sermon if you haven't heard it yet:

Lastly, we got to see Audrey's parents, staying a night in San Antonio, a couple of nights in Boerne, and a few nights in Lubbock, from where I am currently writing you. It's been a great break from the stress of classes and packing.

However, it's also put a bit of a strain on poor little Lydia. Her routine has been interrupted almost the entire time, so she's been a little more fussy and tired than usual. But in a couple of days, we'll be back to the instant sweat-drenching humidity of good ol' STL. Then after a day or two of packing, it's off to Fredericksburg. We get in our house on Aug. 4th, and for those of you who don't have our address up there, it's 5120 Harrison Road, Fredericksburg, VA 22408. Send us some mail!

Probably the next time we'll be writing you, it'll be from the dreamy landscapes of Virginia. We look forward to hearing from you!
