Welcome To My Blog

Weekends are for wandering Wisconsin. That's what Rick, my guy, and I do. Occasionally we wander during the week, too. Sometimes we just drop in on other people's lives.

This blog is my way of sharing where we've been, neat places and things to do that we've found.

Good Friday - Seminary and Speed

Last Friday we didn’t wander too far from home where we discovered Nashotah House nestled in the  Kettle Moraine on the shore of Upper Nashotah Lake (northwest of Delafield). Nashotah House is a seminary of The Episcopal Church, serving the world-wide Anglican Communion and the wider Christian Church. Both men and women train there for ordained and lay ministries. Chartered in 1847, Nashotah House is the oldest institution of higher learning in Wisconsin. Five years before its charter, Nashotah House was born in a little blue house that stands today.
The basement in the Library goes down three stories.
We joined our friends, Pat and Gary from Milwaukee, for the final fish fry of the Lenten season - a fundraiser to help the seminary students with their educational expenses. After dinner we were treated to a tour of the beautiful campus and learned more about the philosophy of the seminary. All at the Nashotah House practice the Benedictine disciplines of work, study, and prayer

Beautiful stained glass windows in the Chapel.
The bell is rung three times a day calling all at Nashotah House to worship.
Visitors are welcomed at services held at 7:30 am, 12:30 pm, and 4:30 pm.
Earlier in the day we were at the Slinger Super Speedway to watch Brittiny Helmers, one of our young friends and future star race car driver, practice for her opening race on April 29.  Brittiny's racing organization is Tiny Motor Sports. She drove a late model around that quarter mile track in a little over 12 seconds!
Brittiny is in her lucky number 13 car. Rick is the Rascal, one of her sponsors!
Here she comes around the track. I couldn't get too close because of the fence.
Check out Rick's video below. This young woman is definitely speedy!
