Yes, I will remember all the history that I have seen, but there are other moments in Greece that will remain with me forever: Watching two young girls play "Rock, Paper, Scissors" in the Athens flea market, Niki and I talking to the young Greek man who almost cried when he spoke of the latest demonstrations and what the future holds for his county. He believes (as do many Greeks) that a new civilization will spring up from Greece, much like civilization began in Greece many years ago; Bethany as she views the beauty of a place and thinks about what travel awaits her in the future; Jon talking and talking and talking to the people of Greece (it is a wonderful sight to behold); Sarah looking at the Acropolis with such a calm, gentle face as she fulfilled one of the items on her bucket list; and Austin taking in every bit of information given to him so that he can relay his experience to you in a blog. It has been a wonderful, exciting couple of days.

  1. I know this trip is amazing for all of you. I am very jealous that you are experiencing this with my child. Of course, I couldn't think of anyone I'd rather him share it with than you. Thank you for always being such an amazing person, teacher, mentor and mostly friend! God's Continued Blessings on the rest of this trip. May you each one continue to see the beauty He has made!
