Mothers Day, Veitnam Tom, and a Graduation Party















This past sunday was busy for us. After church Julie and I drove up to Hampton to have lunch and see Nana and Papa Knerr who were in town visiting. It was great to see them again and in such good spirits!




















Of course, Julie and I had to stop at the Bass Pro shop and get our picture taken, calling Tim Jordan to remind him that the last time I was in a Bass Pro shop, he was getting married . . . did that sound right?





















Many thanks to the bears at Bass Pro, they were surprisingly congenial.




















Call me "Veitnam Tom" . . . I never thought I would be wearing one of these again so soon after that fateful day when Suin Pea ratted out our detail.


Any way, after the Bass Pro, Julie and I were plumb tuckered out, so we went home to prepare for the graduation party we were hosting for Dawn and Nate Mihelis and Scott Logan. Nate graduated this spring with his MDiv; he won the Greek Award for highest cumulative GPA in that lanuage and he won the Servant Leadership award. Congratulations Nate! Dawn was graduating from a job she has hated for the past 4 years to being a stay at home mom of their son, Noah. Scott stopped off on his way to getting his MDiv to get an MBS, with honors. He is going to complete the full MDiv, but having this degree will give him more credibility in the mean time, and ultimately more earning power in the ministry . . . yeah right. Congratulations to the graduates, we all look forward to seeing God's grace use you to further the Kingdom.

you guys crack me up. You need to have some kids, you are too funny to be wasting all that humor on other adults. Kids appreciate it so much more. Oh wait, dont you have some sort of rule about kids . . . !!!!!

LMLogan said...

ooohh what rule...I want to know!! :)

jeileenbaylor said...

Tim use to chant "the rule" to me during college... " no kids until school is OVER!" I guess that's the m Div, otherwise we would NEVER have kids :o)
