Glen Eyrie is the famous Navigator headquarters that's located right next to the Garden of the Gods. Maris and I hiked up to the punch bowls when we were in Colorado Springs for my final training session with the Navigators. What a bittersweet time as I will greatly miss working on staff with this ministry but am excited about joining the New Hope team. Maris and I celebrated our 6 month anniversary at the Silverwood Inn (free drinks and made-to-order breakfast). We are learning. I pray that we're lifelong learners because it's going to take a lifetime for us to master this thing called marriage.

The Gypsy men finished the school year out with breakfast together. Beginning with me and going clockwise, the Gypsy men are Ben, Chris, Jitsuya, Anthony, Daniel, Adam, Brian, Ryan, Henry, and Ethan. Hopefully our times together are not over yet. It's been real, it's been fun, it's been real fun. Just so you know, ladies, many of these guys are single.
Here’s Abe right after he moved the tassel from right to left. I don’t know who’s picture that is right behind him but that doesn’t matter. Abe’s done with his undergrad. Maris and I look forward to him and Ashley staying in the Little Apple next year. If you’re hiring social studies teachers I commend Abe to you.

Here I am with Senator Brownback who just got done speaking to a group of us at the Capitol in Topeka. We were taking part in something called the Global Night Commute which you can check out at www.invisiblechildren.com. About 150 to200 of us Kansans walked for two miles in the pouring rain to the Capitol building to hear Sen. Brownback and a couple from Uganda speak. Then we headed to a nearby parking garage to spend the night. We wrote letter to President Bush and our Senators to encourage them to take notice of the children in Northern Uganda who are being abducted into the Lord’s Resistance Army. We also did some artwork pieces that will go into a sort of yearbook that will help support this movement as well. I was blessed to be a part of this with Maris and some friends.
