Summer Vacation!

So we arrived in Charlotte, NC late last night.  Ryan, my fantastic brother, picked us up from the airport even though he had to work the next day.  He even cooked breakfast for me the following morning (Liz slept in)!

On the itinerary for our summer is to meet up with Steven, Amanda, & Kates tonight for dinner.  We head out to Florida to see my Andrea, Ella, parents, and grandparents for a week.  Then its off to the Crystal Coast to visit la playa (had to thrown in some random Spanish) and great friends.  After a stop off at my seminary to raid the library, we will finally end up in Virginia.  There is a wedding at the end of summer somewhere, but that seems too far away to think about. 

Somewhere amongst all of this traveling, I am taking a directed study w/ my mentor, David Alan Black, on the subject "The New Testament's Use of the Old Testament."  Here is my reading list for this summer:
