Update – just for you Dad and Mom :)

Pretty sure they are the only ones still looking – ha!

We have been increasingly busy with school, soccer and baseball. Since we live in the middle of nowhere, we have to put a lot of miles traveling to and from everything, too. By far, our biggest budget item is for gas. I’m not complaining, it’s just the price we have to pay to enjoy the peace and quiet, but also be involved in activities.

Savannah’s soccer team continues to improve and learn more about soccer, but they are still pretty outmatched. We all knew this would be a learning year so they are taking it very well. They have scored a couple of goals, but have not won any games yet.


We went to a Braves vs Dodgers baseball game again this year. This time, the Braves won. First day of school picture – don’t they look thrilled!


Dad – this was the sunset that I was telling you about on the phone that one night. It was shortly after Hurricane Isaac blew through. I think the phone enhanced the redness of the color, but it was fabulous.


The puppies have all gone except for the two we are keeping. The puppy on the left is “The Bishop” – he was the runt and my favorite. He now belongs to the chaplain in the prison. The puppy on the right is “Casey” – Savannah’s puppy.


This is “Zelus” – Hadden’s puppy. The picture/trophy is from Hadden’s all-star season earlier this summer. Our team Mom does a fabulous job with the gifts – I especially like this picture of Haddo :) The picture on the right is an acorn that Savannah carved out to hold a little bouquet.


We are participating with several other families in a co-op teaching arrangement. We meet one day per week and do mostly elective type classes. So far, we are all enjoying it.


We have been attending a new church for the past six months or so. We loved our previous church, but the location was the problem. We desired for the kids to be able to interact more with the kids that they go to church with, and that wasn’t feasible with the previous church because it was 26 miles in the opposite direction from where they play sports.


The weather is absolutely perfect right now and each year I appreciate fall in the south even more.


Psalm 24:1-2

The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it; for he founded it on the seas and established it on the waters.
