“Congradulaions” Fr. Anthony!

Remembering that Fr. Anthony is from India, a country where he really is a first generation driver. As Americans, we have grown up with cars; we have been driven everywhere by parents who are third and fourth generation drivers. Our whole society is mobile and we love it. For those in India, they have taken trains or buses everywhere, up to the past decade. They just do not have the experience as drivers we are.

Well, the third time is the charm. Fr. Anthony has gained his independence and now has his driver’s license!

Elaine and I decided to stop by Wal-Mart and get a cake to celebrate. A quick trip to the bakery to find the cake. We asked the clerk to write “Congratulation Father Anthony” on the cake. Well, what a surprise we got for our cake. Take a closer look at the picture of the cake. I just had to take picture .

Hello - it's been a while

Hey everyone - so sorry we haven't been updating things lately. There has been a lot going on, but most of it is getting forms in order, figuring out what exactly we are suppose to be doing - which we still are not really sure exactly what that is - we have a general idea, but are starting from scratch so that takes a lot of time and revisions on forms, etc. So in other words, boring to write about.

However, this last week was different. We took a break and Rick went to Florida for a homiletics class. I went to Houston to visit my Mom and family. The bad news is Rick's class was canceled. They decided to change the format to six different Saturdays. Rick will have to decide what he wants to do now. He did teach a class every day for a few hours which he really enjoyed.

I had a blast!!! I drove to Mike's in Bloomington,IN and stayed with him two nights. We went grocery shopping, out to eat and just bummed around. It was really fun to spend time with him!! I also was able to spend a little time with Heather, althought she had to leave that first evening for a conference. I flew to Houston on Sunday and spend the week with family. I really miss family so it was awesome!!! We really didn't do anything special, just kind of hung out. Just what I needed!!!

One thing I have noticed being in Lousia is I really miss my family and friends. They are my support, and I really don't have that here. So thank you family and friends for being there for me. I really need you guys!!! Love you!!!
