Summer at the Fowler's.

For those of you who don't go to Grace Presbyterian Church, you wouldn't know that we've had a summer pastoral intern. And for those of you who don't know anything about the intern, then you wouldn't know that his name is Ross and we just happen to be flat mates (aka we both live upstairs at my parent's house).

We have enjoyed our time with Ross... so much so that I thought I'd share with you a few facts about him.

Random facts about Ross:
- Ross is actually his middle name; William is his first
- He's from Alabama (we still love him)
- He can survive on $20 a week in food
- He is very tidy... you wouldn't even know we had another resident in the house because he's so neat
- He goes to Westminster Seminary in Escondido, CA
- He plays the guitar and sings
- He is a great help with yard work
- He takes his own freshly brewed Starbucks coffee to Starbucks for his Tuesday morning meetings with our pastor and associate pastor
- He can create a picture perfect burger

- He is incredibly thoughtful and sincere
- He laughs at all of the Fowler's jokes (just being polite?)
- He reads really smart books just for fun
- He stashes dark chocolate and peanut butter M&M's in his drawer upstairs (but he shares them with me)
- He helps clear the table and clean the dishes every night after dinner
- He has an ever increasing line of books lined up on his chest of drawers
- He was on a trivia team of sorts in college (I forgot the name... BUT is was consider a varsity team, so it was totally legit)
- He has completed 2 of 4 years in seminary
- He gets more mail forwarded to our address than I do (and more packages from Amazon)
- He has officially become a part of the Fowler family

We have thoroughly enjoyed having Ross around all summer. It makes for delightful dinner conversations and lots of laughs. Plus, he doesn't mind having 4 (ok maybe just my two) rambunctious dogs running around the house all the time. He really does feel like a part of the family and we're gonna miss him!
