Back from Banff
Well, I'm back from a wonderful retreat in Banff. I spent this past Monday to Thursday there for a district retreat, and I just didn't want to leave! I was able to visit with a ton of friends from Bible College, as well as many other children's pastors that I've come to know over the 3 years I've been in Sylvan Lake. I did lots of walking down the streets of Banff, sat in front of the fireplace, and did lots of relaxing. Ate nachos with some single girlfriends. My friend Lydia and I went looking for the cheesiest souvenir in Banff...if you're curious, it was a skimpy pair of red ladies underwear with "Banff, Canada" printed on the front...and no, I didn't buy them. And as J, T and I drove away from Banff on Thursday, we were given a strange farewell by the sight of a man driving a zamboni down the highway in the opposite direction. All in all, a week that made me happy!
