Last Friday, Leatha had a whole day of training for her new job (very part-time job), so I had the kids all day. I thought this was hilarious, because it says something about how Cameron views me. He was apparently very nervous that I would forget to pick him up from school. So he wrote me this note and handed it to me...
This says, "at 3"I unfold it, to find this message,
"Go to school to pick camero
Apparently my son has me figured out. His worst kid nightmare of being left at school was a very real possibility with dad in charge.
Here's a summary of my day:
7:00 AM- Prayer on campus- highlight was having Martin in my group (pictured below). He's a brand new Christian and today was a breakthrough for him. It was the first time I've heard him pray out loud. He prayed, "Jesus, help me tell my family that I've become your follower."
10-11:30 Director's meeting
2:00-3:00- Met with a guy who wanted to become a Christian. He's close. It seems to be a season of open doors for the gospel right now.
3:10-4:30- I taught 30 freshmen in our Theology of the Gospel class. It's such a privilege, even comical, to think of teaching TOG in the "Black Engineering" building at Iowa State.
4:30-5:00 One of the students in my TOG class is Silanto, from Haiti. He has one of the most amazing stories. Unfortunately it's 8:36 pm and I don't feel like blogging anymore tonight.
This is the mud puddle that claimed my iphone last week (right outside of Black). It was such a fluke- my first drop...and it lands in a mud puddle. In spite of some weird glitches, somehow it still functions.
5:45-6:30 Dinner...Thai Chicken Curry with Jasmine rice. Wow, it's so good.
6:30- Put Makai down, the rest of us played Candyland
7:20- All kids in bed
7:30-now Catch up on huskerpedia, usatoday.com, some emails, and blog
8:42- Talk to Leatha before she crashes...
9-ish-???- My free Monday redbox is awaiting me. I watch it in bed on my laptop. I expect to get about 1 hour into Dark Knight before I totally crash....
I predict Makai will wake up screaming (he's not exactly Mr. Sunshine in the morning) at 5:45. Leatha's guess is 5:30. Once again, I'm the eternal optimist...
