Mr. Mom Chronicles 1

Eric has settled into a meal of fish sticks, mac & cheese and corn on this wintry, snowy evening in southern Idaho. As it is a New Year, Kathy is on a new trip, this time to the much more temperate climate of San Antonio, Texas for the annual gathering of the Association of Presbyterian Church Educators (APCE).

Eric and I have enjoyed an afternoon of deli sandwiches from Fred Meyer's and Sponge Bob Square Pants after worship. Worship, by the way, went beautifully as Darlene Annen, John Bonnett, Harry Geist, Ginny Riffle, and Ann Vogt gave five very different and moving testimonies as to what "The Year of the Bible" meant to them. It was truly a glorious and powerful morning of worship at FPC, Twin Falls; even with Eric well behaved in the pews with Judy & Doug Pollow.

So it was a joy this afternoon to come home and get ready for an afternoon Wii (Legos "Star Wars", Mario Kart, Wii Sports, and Wii Play have all been a part of our wintry mix of an afternoon. So, fortunately this has been a grand day of dad and Eric together, as mom has made her way--thankfully safe & sound--to Texas for the annual gathering of Presbyterian and other Church Educators.

May the rest of this week go so smoothly and gloriously.

  1. Sunday was a real joy. Enjoy your days off. You deserve some rest. Don't answer the phone except when Kathy calls.
