300 Hundred Yrs Old Church

We traveled to southern Serbia a couple of weeks ago and visited a monastery/convent there.  The nun who showed us around was really nice.  She is 2 years younger than I am and has been in the convent since she was 9 years old. 

The place was really old but nice and well kept.  There is an old church on the premesis that is around 300 years old.  There is also a new church on the grounds of the monastery that was partially built with funds given them by some people from Chicago.

Ron celebrated his birthday on January 20.  It was a really cold and uneventful day but we did manage to go to a huge park here in Belgrade where you can ice skate for free-including the skates.  Ron and Nikola did a short skate and then headed home to warm up! 

When we got home, the Elders called and had made Ron a GIANT chocolate chip cookie!  They wanted to stop by to deliver some mail which turned out to be the cookie!  What a nice thing for them to do.  Ron is waiting for his B-day present to arrive.  We special ordered a Plaid derby hat that we haven’t picked up yet.  Tomorrow.  He will model it for you next week.  For those who don’t know, Ron Loves plaid.
