#seminarywife in colorado

I started this post back in February, but I’m going to publish it now!

Greg is currently enrolled in Fuller Seminary’s Master of Arts in Global Leadership program, which is a fancy way to say he’s earning a seminary degree primarily online with a cohort of classmates from across the world. Literally. Like on multiple continents. He takes most of his classes online, but he has two in-person two-week stints where he travels, and in January he hadΒ his first stint in Colorado! So since we’re terribly sappy newlyweds who can’t be apart for more than five days, I went to visit during the middle weekend.

I’m gonna keep it short and sweet, list style.

Friday:

  • Spent the morning in class with Greg, learning about his classmates and worshipping with them.
  • Spent the afternoon at the Garden of the Gods, enjoying God’s creation!
  • Ate dinner at the Golden Bee, where we ate authentic English food and they threw adorable bee stickers at us.
  • Finished the night off with some ice cream from Josh & John’s Naturally Homemade Ice Cream.

Saturday:

  • Kicked off the day with delicious lunch at Caspian Cafe.
  • Toured Glen Eyrie, a castle built by the founder of Colorado Springs, which now serves at the headquarters for The Navigators, in the gently falling snow.
  • Took a tour of the Olympic Training Center.
  • Ate dinner at Bristol Brewing, a brewery housed in a renovated school with several other local businesses. The Beehive Honey Wheat was perfect.

Sunday:

  • Visited the US Air Force Academy campus and took in a contemporary worship service at the gorgeous Cadet Chapel.
  • At some yummy Thai food at Thai Mint.
  • Introduced Greg’s classmates to American football and watching the Super Bowl together.

All in all, it was a busy, but still relaxing and funny mini-vacation!Β We’ll see if I visit during the second two-week sessionΒ next summer (2016) in Pasadena!
