This morning I took the examination for my class on the Trinity, which lays to rest the fourth of my seven classes for the semester. I wrapped up the Christology course just after Easter by submitting a paper on the worship of Icons; Canon Law was a mid-semester intensive 6 day block course; and I took and passed the Greek proficiency exam last Friday.
My remaining exams are for anthropology, moral theology, and Creator & creation. I also still have to write a paper for the moral theology class. It's hard to believe that our second year here is already winding to a close.
Also, some of you know already, I think, but our summer plans are finalized. We bought plane tickets for Lisa to fly home with Maria and Thomas from July 3 to July 16. That means they'll arrive back here on the 17th, which is the same day that Peter and Sara are arriving from Rome to spend a couple of weeks with us. We were really fortunate to come upon an offer from Lufthansa (a German airline) where kids fly for free (plus taxes and charges) beginning on July 3. So buying a ticket for Maria was much cheaper than we thought we'd be able to find. She is already very excited to go "to Michigan" with Mommy and baby Thomas in the summer.
