Guess what?

I saw a red leaf on the ground today! Know what that means? Fall is upon us. YAY. It is my favorite time of the year. To kick off the season, we spent a couple hours at the Grabill Country Fair this evening. Such a nice, small community - mostly the Amish.

I spent most of the afternoon at the gym with Sarah. They had a special class today, in preparation for the big meet next weekend. They are looking good out there!

Tomorrow, after church, it is time for Nutcracker auditions. Hard to believe a year has passed, huh? Paige and Sarah are excited to try out again, though the thought of spending 3 hours in a room, with 100's of other girls isn't all that fun sounding. It's going to be a long day, for sure!

Em's volleyball team played their 6th game on Friday night. It was an away game -- out in Columbia City (great little town about 30 minutes from here.) They pulled off another win.
They are undefeated to date! Next Saturday, there is another Invitational. This one is much closer to home, thankfully. She has to be there by 8:30 am and won't be done until 4:30.

On that same day, on the complete opposite side of town...Sarah has her competition. She has to be there at 5 PM. The first girl will start the meet at 6:45. We won't be out of there until 10 or so. Talk about a LONG day. I'm tired just thinking about it!

We had strep throat run through the house. First time, ever. Not fun. Jeff is now battling one hack of sinus/upper resp. infection. Poor guy. Join me in praying over his health, please.

I want to send out prayers to Barclay Allen, Louis Galbreath and all the victims of Hurricane Katrina.
Barclay is our Pastor's son. He is a young married man with 3 small children. They attend our church. Last week, quite unexpectedly, 2 brain tumors were discovered. One has been removed, but the other is too deep in the brain to least right now.
Louis Galbreath is my sister's father in law. In a strange venue of events, he too has been diagnosed with a brain tumor. He also has some heart issues. My prayer for them is that of complete healing -- surrounded in peace. For the victims in the Gulf Coast, my prayers are simple. Find comfort.

Hugs to all.

P.S. I have been keeping this online journal for over a year now. Wow.
