The Home Stretch

So spring break is over and now we only have 3 weeks of school then finals. Wow, where did time go. I must be getting old. Later this week I'm heading to Tulsa, OK to join the International Soul Winning Workshop and have a chance to hang with good friends.

Beginning of Spring Break

Well... we are in in Oregon and are having a great time with our family and friends. Tyson and his cousin Braden are sleeping in the same room.....That's not going to well. It's been a battle everytime they're supposed to sleep. So we need to figure out another place for Tyson to sleep. Friday night I had the pleasure of seeing a friend from Rescue sing in downtown Portland. His band is called Phonochrome and they are quite good. http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendid=242255526
They should be signed soon and playing all over the country. Today after church with my folks, we did lunch at Buster's Barbecue with the Sippel's. It's good to hang with Joel and his wife Sarah. Their little boy Trevor just turned 2 and is a great combo of his parents. (cute kid) I'm looking forward to the rest of this week. More great friends to visit and just more memories to make with the fam. Oh, by the way. I played the Wii for the first time. My brother-in-law has one and it's good fun.

Weather and Excitement

Today is a 80 degree day and it feels wonderful. Yesterday was about 70 and tomorrow will be in the 70's also. We leave for Portland on Friday and the 10 day weather is supposed to be in the 50's and rain everyday. I'm so excited to be back in Oregon to see the green, the mountains, my family and friends, but will miss some warmth. At least it won't jump from 70 down to 30 in a matter of hours. (This has been the pattern here in OKC for the last few weeks.) Praise God for quick means of travel and the funds to make it happen.

OC Goes Apple

This announcement was show in chapel yesterday. All staff, faculty, and incoming freshmen get a MacBook and IPhone. If you don't have AT&T then you can just go with the IPod touch. All other classes can do a buy-in for a great deal according to your graduation date. I believe all colleges and universities should chime in on this fine deal. (I love Macs) That's our university president in the video.
