The kids are out of school this week because of conferences and teacher conventions. I love that we have a whole week in the most beautiful part of fall so we can enjoy it together. Today we took a little road trip to visit my alma mater. I haven't been there in 20+ years, and I've been itching to to see how it's changed.
Thankfully, this year my nephew Kyle gave us a reason to finally make the trip, by starting school as a freshman at Gustavus. Yea Kyle!
There are quite a few big, shiny new buildings on campus, but my favorite upgrade was outdoors in the arboretum. Beautiful gardens, water features, an interpretive center. I wish I could go for a walk there everyday. There was even a display of scarecrows.
It was fun to see Christ Chapel again. It is so beautiful. It reminded me of how foundational my college years were to my faith.
What a blessing to get to share this visit with my family and be reminded of how the dreams of a young college student have all come true. God is so faithful!
