Holy Cross Seminary

22 Oct

Adeline slept beautifully last night and we were able to sleep in just a tad (7:00 AM Nashotah time!) We readied quickly, had a quick breakfast, and drove the four miles (in twenty minutes) to Holy Cross.  We met with a seminarian who showed us around the premises and told us a little bit about how Holy Cross runs.  Then we met with the Admissions Director who answered a few of our questions.

Afterwards we had a quick lunch in the refectory and walked around  campus and snapped a few pictures before meeting with the Financial Aid/Housing guy (the Greek Fr. Easterling/Dr. Klukas).  He answered some of our questions, spurred others, and completely scared me with financial figures…but that’s for another day!

Adeline fell in love with the office assistant, an older lady named Agnes.  She quickly asked Agnes to hold her, and I don’t think she was put down for much of our visit!

Agnes showed us the Metropolitan Iakovos Museum in the Library.

I wish I had gotten photos inside the chapel because it is absolutely breathtaking – unfortunately I was contending with Adeline and couldn’t manage both.  But, God willing, we’ll be there in a year and I’ll show you all around!

After our visit to the school, we regrouped in the hotel and wandered across the street to a large arcade and bistro (also a bowling alley, but we did not utilize that part). After dinner, Adeline and Matthew played a few games.

Now, after finishing my homework in the hotel lobby while Adeline slept in the room, Matthew and I are sitting in complete darkness messaging each other back and forth from across the room.  Traveling certainly is different with a child!  Normally we would be out on the town, seeing the sites.  But normal isn’t normal anymore and we are enjoying every moment of our lives as parents to a one-year old.  As always, God uses her to remind us to slow down and enjoy some rest and relaxation.  Though, I do sometimes wish He would use her to remind us how to sleep in!
