The short take...

We're enjoying a crazy summer (already), before Kate starts Kindergarten (ALREADY!!?) this fall. Our kids are so much fun, and we are SO blessed!

It's hard to believe another month has come and gone since we posted last, but here we are! First of all, be sure to check out Kate's latest pictures, including some of her in her Halloween costume! She's doing so well- she's really fully turned into a little girl in the last few weeks! Her hair is even long enough that she's wearing pigtails a few times a week now...melting hearts wherever she goes. :)

Papa is back home now, and the proud owner of a Wii, (his birthday/Christmas present from his kids). He really seemed to enjoy it last week when we were all up there for his birthday dinner. He had a great trip though- it seemed to be really what the doctor ordered.

Daniel has had a great few weeks- mom and dad were able to get back for his Track Select ceremony last week, and though the instructors had a lot of fun roasting and embaressing he and his classmates, it sounds like a great experience. And best of all: he got the slot he requested! That's right, he's going to be a helicopter pilot! There was only one slot for three candidates, and he was the one who got it! We're so proud of him, and can't wait to see him next week for Thanksgiving!

Then the day after Thanksgiving (well, technically it'll be Thanksgiving afternoon), Michael and Dave are heading out to the woods for their week-long elk hunt! It's bound to be cold, but they can't wait to get out there. And of course, then it'll be the Christmas season! Hard to believe, but we can't wait to see HOW much fun Kate has this year Christmas morning!

Well, what else have we been doing these few weeks? We've seen Ethan and Tiffany and family a few times up here, stayed really busy at home and work, played with Kate to no end, enjoyed the first snow of the season (it left again quite quickly), done lots at church, watched the elections (you bet we voted)...too much to list. Anyway, it's been a great few weeks. We're praying that your weeks have been equally so.

See you here again soon!
