"Ohhh, we're halfway there. Whooooaaa, livin' on a prayer..."
I'm halfway done Parental Leave, 9 weeks down, 9 weeks left. It's safe to say the novelty's worn off, but I love and cherish every laughing moment with the kids. Even the frustrating, head-shaking, episodes of meltdown and zero patience are not all that different from the workings of church governance (dare I comment about Presbytery or Conference or General Council? I guess I have).
In the weeks ahead, I'll be keeping busy with London Conference's Youth Forum, a family vacation to St. John's, Newfoundland, and endless references to Dora the Explorer.
