Melissa and Sam were gone for a few days this week, so Sam & I took some special man-time Saturday and headed to Chick-Fil-A for a special summer treat. Sam started with an IceDream™, but once he got a taste of my Cookies & Cream milkshake, that was all she wrote. Apparently he has no lactose intolerance issues.
Our beloved Georgia mascot, Uga VI, died last night. He was crowned when Jake & I were students there, was our largest and winningest mascot, and will be greatly missed by the Bulldog Nation.
We’ll miss you, Uga VI– the way you rolled in the ice, your floppy jowls, and especially your tendency toward immodest camera angles . We look forward to meeting VII and cheering on our Dawgs for years to come.
I (Melissa) volunteered at our church’s VBS last week as the Bible teacher [How did I qualify for this job? I think it has everything to do with the fact that I’m married to a seminarian]. Uptown organizes it to reach out to as many unchurched kids as possible, so instead of one giant VBS, we have three smaller sessions at three different homes. Our “smaller” session at the Mendenhall home consisted of 72 kids, aged 3-8(?). We had this mad scientist/laboratory theme that was fantastic and really taught the kids about Jesus.
