Today I blessed to spend time with two good friends who are leaving town within the next few days to continue on their respective life journeys.
For dinner we hosted the myth, the man, and the legend Jan Chan for dinner at our place. The kids (along with Gail and I) had been looking forward to his visit all week and unsurprisingly there was no shortage of things to talk and laugh about. Jan shared stories of his two years of teaching in different cities in England along with his excitement of going to Melbourne to work for the upcoming year. We played a fun board game (in which Jan, Jacob, Sean and Gail all tied for first leaving me as the only one in last) and enjoyed yummy fudge bars for dessert before Sean and Jacob defeated Jan and me in a friendly game of soccer on the Xbox (see a pattern here?). It was a great night of both reminiscing and looking ahead.
