October

I can't believe we survived September! The pace was insane, we knew it would be, and knew it was short lived, so pushed through. From dinner times any time between 4:30 and 8:00, rushing to sometimes 3 events after school, we are now resolved to a much more enjoyable pace. Between working a lot at the beginning of the month, being sick for a week, and Kevin's 40th, I don't think we could have fit in anything else! With the start of school, the return of soccer, the start of beginning of the year events, it quickly became hectic. Erin was doing 3 sports that all overlapped and were all 3 days a week, but 2 of them have come to a grinding halt. Good thing for home body Jacob who keeps life at a good pace with his need to be at home, and relax, he keeps us all leveled.

This month we can take a little more rest to our minds, our souls, our studies- I've started a great new ladies' Bible study too- so excited- we're doing Beth Moore's "Jesus the One and Only". I did in about 5 years ago and LOVED it, so happy to dive in again with different perspective and life circumstances.

I've accomplished nothing today except reading your blog it seems. Ooh, the Beth Moore study is intriguing. Sue and I are looking for one and since the last Beth Moore one was so good...
