Wow! I'm always amazed when school starts how quickly everything moves. School starts, church programs like AWANA and discipleship classes start back, extracurricular stuff gets going ... and before you know it, September's half over! So now I am going to attempt to catch up with our goings-on for the last month since I posted.

Jeff and I have been happily busy with the College and Career ministry at Maysville. We began teaching the class the first Sunday in August. The crew usually comes over on Sunday nights after church and we play games and eat food, and laugh and have a great time. We had our first "official" outing Labor Day weekend -- we went to a bowling alley and bowled a couple of games, played pool and air hockey. The next weekend was the kick off for our church's Christmas pageant. We have already begun praying for the lost who will attend. Sunday evenings Jeff and I are taking a class on how to be effective teachers. On Monday nights we have visitation, and I take a class on sharing the gospel. This past Sunday our church went to two services -- just five months after moving to a new building! God is doing such an amazing work at Maysville and we feel so blessed to be a part of it. We have grown more spiritually in the past few years than ever!

Katie, in addition to beginning school and loving it, began her third year of ballet last week. She has a new teacher this year and I think she's going to be really good for Katie. The kids also started back to AWANA. I love the fact that the kids are "hiding God's word in their hearts". Joe is a Cubbie this year, so he gets to memorize too! I wasn't sure if he would say his verse for the teacher, but he's done it every week so far. He's just so good at talking only when he wants to! I had to take him to the doctor yesterday. He had a fever and had just been out of sorts. He said a couple of times that his ear hurt. Those were his only symptoms. The doctor took one look and said it was definitely an ear infection and his ear drum may be perforated! Joe's now on an antibiotic and we have to go back in three weeks for Dr. Johnson to do a recheck.

Okay, that's a really long post! I'll try to keep up better in the future!
