City ChurchOur family recent took a long road trip. A few hours in, our 2 year old wanted to know when we could stop to get something to eat. We were coming up on Columbus, Ohio, so we told her that once we got through the city, we would stop for “num nums.” As we approached the city, Emily described what a city would look like so our daughter could know when we were close.

Some of my teammates loved that band, so we listened to it all day, every day.
