Happy Thanksgiving Week!

Happy Thanksgiving from Chicago, ya'll! We are staying here for the holiday this year, and we are happy to have Zach's brother Matthew join us for the week. We'll be spending Thanksgiving Day with some of our LSTC family, JT, Erin, Nora and Sully Burk.

Some of you may already know, but Zach recently went to Gettysburg, PA for the Luther Bowl, a flag football tournament between several seminaries. This was the first year that Chicago sent a team, and they went undefeated to become Luther Bowl champions! Unfortunately, Zach returned to Chicago with a battle wound. He broke his right wrist and will undergo surgery soon. He's doing well, and we'll keep you updated on his recovery. He's mostly frustrated because typing is slow going, and he has some big papers coming up for the end of the semester.

While Zach was out becoming a champion, my mama and granma Pharr visited me in Chicago. We had a great time catching up. I took them to see the Bean, State Street shopping, to eat in Greektown, around Hyde Park, and to Evanston for church on Sunday. I loved having them both here, and hope they will come back soon!

We wish you all a blessed and happy Thanksgiving holiday!
