Family Pictures

Thanks to our friend Krista, we got a couple of great family pictures on Sunday so we can send one to our new church. They turned out so nice!

Going to the Baseball Game

One of the many fun things that happens at the end of your seminary career (besides scrambling to get all of your work done) is to go on a class outing...a baseball game! We had a beautiful day yesterday and although the game wasn't that great, the experience was. Timothy did great and it was a lot of fun to watch him react to the crowd and all of the fun sights. We have also invested in a nice camera that gave Jared something to fiddle with while the not-so-interesting game was played. I think he did really well and we got some really cute pictures of our growing boy...who looks more like a boy and less like a baby everyday, especially with a cute hat on. :)

Hanging out in his carrier for the first time...he didn't seem to mind!

Much more interested in daddy's finger than posing

Ahhh! One of my favorite pics so far!

Finally, he had enough and fell asleep. :)

Gregory, South Dakota

Call Day at the Seminary has come and gone...we have been waiting for so long for it to come that it is hard to believe that it was yesterday already. It is truly an awesome experience when the Seminary chapel is packed and the organ is playing full blast. I know many people watch it online, but it is not the same.

Jared has been placed at St. John Lutheran Church in Gregory, South Dakota. We are so excited! From everything we have read, Gregory is a great place to make a home and the church family we are joining is a happening place. I think it will sink in even more when we have official dates set for moving and ordination and we see some pictures of the parsonage. :) I am thrilled at the thought of moving to a house and STAYING there for more than just a year or two. Details will be shared as we find out.

I can't believe Jared is almost done at the day is over and the senior banquet is done. Next the list...class outing, to a Cardinals' game of course. We are looking forward to taking Timothy down to the stadium on Saturday for his first game...hopefully the weather will be nice!

On another happy note, Timothy is starting cereal!!!! :) He doesn't take a whole lot and I am not sure how much he actually swallows because he always gets his fingers in there too, but it is certainly a positive experience thus far and we can't be happier. He is also lets us play with a bottle again, but he isn't really interested in sucking it, just chewing.

Not sure if he is in the middle of talking to his easter basket toys or starting to gag on the cereal, but we will go with the first option. :)
