Graduation Weekend at MBI

Celebration Our Son's Graduation in Chicago

Chicago View
The city from the air.

The Chicago River.

I have a feeling...

...we're not in Staunnton anymore...

...riding the elevated railway past the red CNA Building!

Cloudgate (aka 'The Bean')

This sculpture in Millenium Park is probably the most photographed piece of civic art in the world.

Be sure to look up when you walk through the gate.

Moody Bible Institute

Moody Graduation
Moody Bible Institute is part of the legacy of Dwight L. Moody. An uneducated shoe salesman, Moody became one of the greatest evangelists of the Nineteenth Century. He started a Sunday School Movement to reach uneducated urban youth. Today Moody graduates minister around the world.

IMG_9981 find their place in the world. My Son and his fiancée participate in the obligatory cheezy photo session. My joy in them is very real.

Congratulations to Sam and to his parents who provided the firm foundation. You've got a great kid there, Bob ... he has always been a joy to have around as they have grown up. Your photos are beautiful -- as always -- and I loved the "Toto" shot of "We're not in Staaauuunton anymore"!

And time marches on....
