It's Archer's ninth birthday today -- but I feel like I got all the presents. Great news arrived in our offices about the scholarships we can offer to our recruits. My co-editor sent me an e-mail letting me know that our book on theology and energy got rave reader reviews, and that Fordham University Press had accepted it for publication. I spent the day having imaginative, stimulating discussions about the future with my fellow administrators.
And the two smartest, sweetest, happiest kids in the world went off to school arm in arm. What more could anyone ask?
