2017 East Coast Magical Mystery Tour Day 3, 4, 5

The next 3 days were the annual ACCS conference, which filled our days.  I won’t write here about all the great sessions and plenaries, others than to copy in a snippet that George Grant used about “The Long Explore…”

Rabbit:

I’ve got a splendid idea! Now listen: we’ll take Tigger for a long explore, see, somewhere he’s never been before. And we’ll lose him there!

Winnie the Pooh:

[awakes] Lose him?

Rabbit:

Oh, we’ll find him again next morning, and mark my words, he’ll be a humble Tigger, a small and sad Tigger, and a “oh, rabbit, am I glad to see you” Tigger. And it’ll take the bounces out of him, that’s what! Now, all in favor, say ‘aye’.
Piglet:

Aye. [Pooh falls asleep again] Pooh. [shakes Pooh awake] Pooh!
Winnie the Pooh:

[waking up, then raising his hand] Oh, here.
Rabbit:

Oh-ho-ho, good. Just good. Motion carried.

Why include this?  It reminded me a lot of why I tackle some of the adventures I do — to be humbled, to be reminded of how small I really am.  I don’t get sad, though, I get excited!  It’s a beautiful world, meant to be explored!

After the conference was over around noon, we drove up to Grove City College to get a guided tour of the campus.  It’s a great little school and a wonderful campus.

And that night Kelly and I went to a fantastic restaurant (Piratas) while the kids stayed back — they were full from lunch and didn’t want dinner just snacks.
