Family Vacation Post #2
The weather was horrible today, so we drove out to Wheaton College and explored the school. What a great looking college. Wheaton is where Billy Graham went to college, our Pastor Doug Munton went there, and one of the men I respected most in life, the late Dr Larry Ward of Food For the Hungry who I worked for in the late 1970s. I can see why they all liked it so much. I'd like for Matthew and Bethany to attend Wheaton if we can swing it. Then we took a much lighter detour and headed off to Ikea to look at furniture. You can't go in there without spending a paycheck or two. They have some great stuff. Sorry, but no Cubs game for us today. The thunderstorms were too off and on. Lots of tornadoes in central Illinois today. It was a good day to stay indoors. We will be heading home tomorrow morning.
