Chad's Birthday and Petra

Sorry, if you looked for the site over the last week. We had some problems with the server that runs the site. We should be good for a while though.

Otherwise, we had some fun on Wednesday. Chad had his first official day off. I work at Kenowa Hills Public Schools. Its actually the first job I have had that actually includes paid vacation and paid days off. I got my first day off for Good Friday. However, they do it as a floating holiday and took it on my birthday. Since, May 11th is a Wednesday Melissa had it off as well. We had a fun day of running around.

The funnest thing we did was go to see the Petra Exhibit at Calvin College. It is a traveling museum exhibition on the ancient city of Petra that normally only stops at museums. However, one of their stops apparently fell through. Calvin was able to get their spot on the schedule and converted their conference center into exhibition space. It was a pretty neat exhibit. If you get a chance to see you should. Its there until August so you have some time. One of the coolest things was when they talked about the city having a water system that could support around 100,000 people even though they were in the middle of desert.

Anyway, I hope everyone had a great weekend.
