CHICAGO

And what a treat to finally get to go to Chicago. It was the MOST scariest thing I have done since performing on stage and teaching seminary for the first time ever!!!! It was my first Student Band Tour as the TD (tour director). But I was so completely and totally not by myself. I felt the prayers of loved ones being answered continually. The best part was when I received a call from Ryan giving me the Joyful sounds of his newborn baby boy crying on the other end of the phone. He called right before I was to give my first tour! So sweet. Then right when the final bus drove out around the corner out of site on my last day, Rob called and pulled up in front of Navy Pier in a taxi looking for me. ... Whoo Hoo, we had a lovely lunch on lake Michigan and then got to drive home together in the Audi with the top down and had a great afternoon together catching up after being apart for two weeks!!!!

Now we are enjoying the "new green" in Avon Lake, O-HI-O ... anticipating the time we get to go hold our new grandbaby Conner the end of the month. He will be blessed on June 2nd and joined by his boy cuzin, Finn and Uncle Bradley. It will be so way cool to have the brothers together with their sons!
