Friday morning we left (we being me, S and K and the munchkins) for Indy to join Rob and Leah for their wedding celebration. For those of you who don’t know Rob and Leah, we are not related in any way – but Rob has been a good friend of our family for say … about 16 years! We met him back when he was in high school and actually he was one of the first people I got to know well at Central because as Cubbies leaders, Rob and I had the inate ability to be entertaining in a VERY SMALL room with a VERY LOT of 4 and 5yo Cubbies. (Let me just say here – that Kelly and Rob can actually SING.)
As the parents would pick up the kids, we would be the Cubbies “worship” team (Cubbie chaos team?) and along with Kelly S lead the kids in singing EVERY SONG WE COULD THINK of amid tons of laughter. Oh, and there was the hot July Sunday that Rob and I did the pre VBS Cubbie skit with Rob dressed in the Cubbie costume (think about having your entire body covered with two inches of fabricated, unbreathable fake fur). I was in the air-conditioned auditorium, but Rob was stuck in a very small unair-conditioned oversized closet. Let’s just say, Cubbie almost melted that day.
But then we both got “promoted” to JV – where we worked for several years. We’re very good at teaming together to do a magazine thing that will totally puzzle your middle schoolers and have them extremely frustrated in how we manage to do it.
Anyhow, S and K got to know Rob well, too, through JV and through The Group at church. Ken and Rob were also very close.
About three years ago, Rob moved to Indy and then last August, on the way to Cedarville, Ruth M. and I stopped to meet Leah – the new person in Rob’s life. (I could’ve told you right then, we would soon be attending a wedding.) And then came the phone call announcing their engagement.
And now, this weekend, the wedding.
We went down early because Kelli played and therefore, she needed to be at the rehearsal.
Here are some photos from Friday night.
