Rites of Passage

This year will be a transitional year for our younger two sons. Markus will move on to college and Calvin will get his license and move on to high school. This past weekend was a precursor to these transitions. Calvin got his driver's permit and Markus went to a preview day at Trinity Western University. I went with Markus to visit Trinity, where we got to spend time with Bjorn as well. We arrived in Langley in time to watch Bjorn lead a Bible study at the MRD club (Mountain Riders Discipleship) Then we watched Jenny play rec. soccer at 11:00pm. The preview day on Friday went well and I was once again impressed with the quality of Trinity's program-strong academics from a Christian perspective, high teacher to student ratio, opportunities for ministry and spiritual growth, all with a good balance of freedom and responsibility. Friday night, Markus and Bjorn went snowboarding at Mt. Seymour, while I went to Lynden and spent time with my mom and Esther's family. (Thanks for supper, Kay) Saturday was a bust as the wind closed Mt. Baker which we had hoped to enjoy. Instead, we had a leisurely day with Esther's family and Bjorn and Jenny.
