Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Phillipians 4:8

The end of summer...the beginning of lots of things!

It's September already...the official end of summer, I guess. We finished the season off with our one and only camping trip of the year. We spent to holiday weekend at Center Lake Bible Camp with about 6 other families from our church.

Camping with two young kids always seems like a lot of preparation, but we did have a really good time at camp. It is a great place for families and there is lots to do. Swimming, playground, kayaking, horse back riding, skeet shooting, lots of eating, chapel service, game time, volleyball....we packed a lot into a four day weekend.

The day after returning home began our adventures in having a school age kid. I took Regan on Tuesday for a meet and greet scavenger hunt. She got to go inside a school bus, meet her teacher and get to know her classroom. Wednesday was the first official day of school, complete with bus rides to and fro.

Regan absolutely loves going to school. On Thursday morning, all I heard for 4 hours was...'is it time for school yet?'. I know these days of excitement about school won't last forever, but I will enjoy them while they do.

Tonight, my home is filled with the aroma of what has become a fall tradition in our house....TORTELLINI SOUP!! YUM! The 18 quart roaster is filled to the brim with the first half of a batch that lasts us through most of the winter. Regan has been asking for this for about 2 months!

Hope your transition to fall is filled with blessings!
