It’s official: the Israel trip is on

Really, Bud? Israel? Right now?

You know there’s rockets and stuff; talk of a ground invasion. Mmm….life never can just be a smooth road, can it?

The seminary is really having to make a major decision here. They’ve been working on this trip for so long; it would be a huge disappointment to cancel. But on the other hand (insert Toppel’s voice from Fiddler on the Roof), it’d be pretty bad PR to send your students over there and have them get stuck or something worse.



…the trip is on!!!

All right, I’m not a worrier. And I was truly hoping that he would get to go, and he is!! I’m beyond excited for him.

And you all get to enjoy my running commentary on taking care of the girlies alone.

Series coming soon!

(In case you all were wondering, this series is past tense. But just forget that while you’re reading.)

Series coming soon: Taking care of four little girls alone (while my husband goes on an amazing study trip to Israel)


1. We have four little girls ages 4,3,2, and 1.

2. I take care of them all day while my husband works full-time to support us and attends seminary classes at night.

3. You could say this is somewhat taxing.

4. I do get relief when my husband comes home at night and I get to exercise my mind with the theological concepts he relays.

5. But it’s all going to end… for two whole weeks.

6. Because he’s going to Israel.

7. And I’m staying here.

you better believe I’ll be blogging about this one
