    August 27, 2005 – Greetings from the Draper vicarage in beautiful Sun Prairie, WI! We are settling in to our new home and want to share a few highlights from our very busy month. Before moving to Sun Prairie, Kevin and Sallie spent a week in New Ulm, MN assisting with the web coverage of the 58th Biennial convention of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod. It was an awesome experience – tons of work but memories for a lifetime!!!

    Our move went incredibly smoothly, thanks totally to the wonderful people who blessed us with their help! Check out the pictures below. Through all of this, our boys were enjoying time with their Texas grandparents at their home, “Boot Ranch”. One of many highlights was building an outside play helicopter.

    We have a new member of our family these days – “Vicar” Draper! You can read about his installation below. He is adjusting well to his new name and responsibilities. His days have been filled with shut-in visits, meetings, and sermon and catechism preparation.

    The rest of the family is having fun in Sun Prairie as well. We believe we have found library heaven, as the Sun Prairie library is by far our favorite local attraction! The boys started school this week, and I’m including photos of them with their teachers. They love Peace school!!! What a blessing! And Sallie is getting into a routine – working 4 days a week at home and driving in to Milwaukee for work one day each week.

    Our September calendar is filling up quickly so please plan to check in again for more news. Until then, God bless and keep you all!
