We have had a busy last few weeks. School is in full swing for everyone. Greg is especially enjoying his Marriage and Family counseling class. I am enjoying it too:) He has come home from class and said, "I think Dr. Hartung hit the nail on the head." Then he will go on to explain something that I have been trying to help him understand about me for years. Somehow this professor seems to make it all make sense. Yeah, Dr. Hartung! :) It has been great, pretty funny actually. I think it will greatly benefit Greg's ministry down the road. This class will go great with the Marriage and Family Life Masters degree that Greg was working on before we came to the seminary.

The weather has finally cooled down. We actually broke out the blue jeans this weekend. We are all well and enjoying all the fun things here in the fall. Jojo always has us laughing. He is starting to use the potty and is just plain silly. We have so much fun with him, all of us. I wouldn't call it the terrible twos, more like the terrific twos. He can definitely get upset when things don't go his way, but he is really easy going for the most part. It just warms my heart how all of the other kids just love him so much. Today Louis put him down for a nap and they were both so sweet together.

Last night we went to the balloon glow in Forest Park. We hiked over there with a group of about 20 from the sem. and saw them light up all the hot air balloons. This year they seemed to bring them down earlier last night. I think there was too much wind. But today they had the balloon race. They were expecting over 200,000 people in the park. It was a beautiful day and we had a blast just watching from campus. I wanted to get a better picture but we were a good mile away. Caleb counted at least 25 balloons in the sky. The energizer bunny balloon was by far the kid's favorite. For us Wisconsin folk who are fortunate to even see a hot air balloon in the sky once in a summer, to see so many is a real treat. We are always amazed at all of the fun things there are to do here. We are trying to take in as many as we can while we are here. Last week we went to the Clayton Art Fair. Apparently it is one of the best in the nation. Louis now says he wants to be a glass blower when he gets bigger.
