Change is in the air....

Summer has come to an end for us.... It had to happen eventually. What a great summer it was. In the past few weeks, we've gotten out camping twice. The first time with our friends Jason and Shannon and the second was just the four of us. We headed to Peninsula State Park in Door County. It's an absolutely beautiful park that is on Lake Michigan (Green Bay), and has hiking and biking trails throughout it. We did a few short hikes with the girls and Justyn played with Alicyn in the water for a bit. Other than not being able to get Alicyn down to sleep until close to 10:30, it was a fantastic trip.
Over the past several weeks, Justyn has also helped his dad build some steps and had the favor returned so that we now have steps down to our pier. We've started remodeling one of our bathrooms as well.
Last Monday, our friends Tim and Vicky came up for a visit. We haven't seen them in about 5 years. Tim is in seminary, and they just got placed for his internship in Appleton. We're very exited to be near them for the next year.
Rae has been very busy with the girls. They are growing so quickly. She will also be babysitting 1-2 (depending on the day) additional children throughout the school year.
Justyn started work (officially) last week with a few days of inservice. Students start on Tuesday already. We are looking forward to slowing down and getting back into a routine again, as the summer has been a bit hectic (but wonderful)!
