Sorry I have taken so long to have a response to the last post. The main reason is that I wanted to tell my MCF people first before too many people knew. So last night, I announced to MCF that...
We are moving to Vermont!
I am going to the University of Vermont next year to work on my masters in Classics. I am really, really excited...albeit, very nervous as well! I received a fellowship, which means I will have full tuition plus a stipend, with no work duties.
In case you are wondering where Vermont is...here you go:
Here is the school. It's really cold up there. Like the average high in the summer is 81 degrees. So we are going to be stocking up on winter clothes.
This is Church Street Marketplace. It's this beautiful open air marketplace in Burlington with fun shops and restaurants. Burlington is the largest city in Vermont, but only has 38 thousand (although I think its really more like 110 thousand if you count all of the surrounding cities and towns).
More pictures of the campus...
Anyway, we will be moving sometime at the end of this summer. I will keep ya'll updated. In some ways, moving to Vermont is scarier than moving to Malawi. At ABC, we at least knew there would be a core group of Christians there. But Vermont is very liberal and does not have a lot of Christians (I'm not saying the two have to be linked...I'm just stating what Vermont is like). There is one PCA church with 50 members in all of Vermont.
But I really think we will love it there. There are more artisans per capita in Vermont, tons of local and organic restaurants and grocery stores, tons of historic places, beautiful scenery, Lake Champlain, and SNOW!
Oh, and Jason, since you guessed right, I will send you some Maple Syrup next year!
