on saturday we went to our first ever penn state football game. we are!.... ....new at this! but we had a blast. we left at 10:30am for the 3:30 game at beaver stadium, just a few miles from our house. we got there without any traffic, got into our parking space and set up "camp," which meant that we had table and chairs and food and snacks and drinks and games and toys. we played board games, threw the football, had a dangerous throwing competition, and took a walk around the perimeter of beaver stadium to fully emerge in this "cross cultural experience" as i kept calling it. the weather was spectacular, and helped us to fully appreciate the pregame, as well as the game itself. once we got into the stadium, we were blessed with padded seats (with backs!) and truly enjoyed all the pomp and circumstance of the blue band, the student section, the nittany lion, and more. so much fun! the game was sort of meh, at least in the first half, as penn state
a collection of words about God and life and art and baseball and football and hope and my family and my ministry and music and the immense joy in each moment of all of it. it's a record of being human. welcome.
