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 had 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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! We’ll see if I visit during the second two-week session next summer (2016) in Pasadena!
