A few short thoughts:
Hope is doing well. She hasn’t been too sick in the past two weeks. The baby will probably be born around September 13. We’re looking for some good names if you have any suggestions.
Spring has finally sprung. The daffodils that were planted in the fall around our house are close to opening up and students have appeared outside on the grass to bask. It isn’t spring until students are lying around outside pretending to study.
I’ve decided to read only one book at a time. I have typically had several books going at once: one as devotional, another to read in a distracting environment, one that can only be read in silence, one that is directly involved with my job and probably one other book just for good measure. NO MORE. It’s one book at a time: A Generous Orthodoxy by Brian McLaren. I have not been impressed thus far with Mr. McLaren’s ego-centric writing style. If he gives me one more warning about the radical ideas that he is about to share; that I could put the book down at any moment, I’m going to puke.
Opening day is this Sunday when the Indians take on the White Sux. Go Tribe!
