We traveled to Lynchburg, VA for Aaron to take 2 of his 3 intensives included in his program. His program is all online except for 3 1-week intensives. We stayed at an Extended Stay America hotel across the street from the college. It was such a great hotel because of the price and that we were able to buy groceries since we had a kitchen in our hotel room (fridge, microwave, sink, stovetop, sadly no oven though).

That same day we also went to the National D-Day memorial, which was very neat, but not quite as good as Appomattox Court House. All of the memorial was outside (it was over 90 degrees that day and BRIGHT sunshine, even at 4 pm). So I started to get sick from the heat/sun. We still managed to spend about an hour there. I would suggest going there even still because it was awesome to see the memorial and remember what those brave soldiers did for us. Also, if you do get to go there, we missed the walking tour by like 10 minutes, but if you can take a walking tour, I'm sure it will be better.
Aaron spent quite a bit of time in the evenings working on homework but we did manage to watch some discovery channel together which was fun. We watched Dirty Jobs with Mike Rowe, Duel Survival, and Mythbusters, all rather awesome shows. We also managed one Friday to hang out with Aaron's classmate, Franklin who is an AWESOME man of God. It was such a blessing to get to spend some time with him. He had apparently felt rather lonely since his wife couldn't accompany him to VA. It was great to eat lunch with him and then we hung out for a few hours, prayed together and took him to the airport. It was great though to see how God works through different people and how He shapes our faith.

We also managed to go to Cold-Stone Creamery a few times. YUM YUM. I love me some icecream. It's probably HORRIBLE for you but I loved it anyway. So tasty.
On our last night there, Aaron and I walked around the campus. We bought a few things at the bookstore, walked around taking pictures, and ventured in the prayer chapel. That part of campus was so amazing. You could just feel the Spirit moving there. It was quite awesome.
