the annual fall retreat is a highlight of the year for illini life. luca starts talking about it in january.
and the aftermath is always the same. we are tired and a bit grubby. a larger than usual pile of laundry is waiting. the cooler needs to be wiped down and the van needs a good vacuuming.
it is all so worth it. we spent much-needed time connecting with our church family. there are old friends to catch-up with and new students to meet. i am much too sleepy to do it justice right now. but trust me, it is awesome.
tonight we set aside the post retreat clean-up to eat pizza and watch a panda learn kung-fu.
now time to sleep in our own beds. goodnight!
