When PChad was in Seminary, one of the requirements was to do a summer assignment at a church. We were assigned to a small church in the middle of
I thoroughly enjoyed being able to take advantage of fields & wide open spaces. I’m a country girl at heart!
And every now & then, PChad would take a break & enjoy it with me too.
The parsonage came supplied with two Momma cats, so we were able to enjoy a fresh batch of kittens shortly after we arrived.
One of the parishioners loaned us a puppy (with the hope that we’d become attached & take it back to Michigan with us), so we were able to hit the “puppy stage” that is a vital step on the road to becoming parents…
…and we named her “Prairie”.
After our time commitment was over, we headed to PChad’s parents for a few weeks, and had the opportunity to take our niece & nephew camping for a few days.
All in all, it was a great summer. We had a great placement, and felt really welcomed by the community, and as an added bonus, we got to spend some time with PChad’s family.
