I look at the calendar and I have not even the slightest sadness or regret that I'm not hunkered down preparing for a new school year at the seminary. It doesn't mean I'm not hunkered down, though. I'm still working hard on the church history text, and I have one final chance to look at "Leadership Reconsidered" before it goes to press.

Today, however, was for relaxation. We biked more than 20 miles, beyond Rockford and back (the longest I've gone since the dog bite), and then we spent some time this evening kayaking. Tomorrow we'll be spending much of the day with Son Carlton and granddaughter Kayla.
