This week (and last...):
We visited a church in Lincoln City, OR and spent a few beautiful days at the beach.
Beach sunsets and being chased by waves.
We wrapped up a month of speaking at different churches with a missions weekend at our home church in Stayton. We shared a bit of PNG food at their taste of missions dinner, along with several other visiting missionaries.
Greg's elementary school had a jog-a-thon fundraiser. Greg was very anxious about being able to meet his goal of 15 laps.
He shouldn't have been worried. He was at the top of the class with 22 laps. He was a very proud little boy.
And he went ahead and lost that other front tooth.
Loving the fall colors!
The kids now all own tennis shoes! We've finally reconciled to the fact that we can't make it all year round here in sandals and Crocs. We celebrated Caleb's new kicks one morning with some races around the loop in front of our house before Greg caught the bus to school.
This morning we visited a pumpkin patch with Caleb's preschool class. Caleb was happy, but miss Kate is feeling sick today, and so this is pretty much how she felt about the whole thing.
Hayride to the apple orchard to pick an apple.
Lots of pumpkins to choose from!
And most importantly, fresh apple cider and an apple cider donut to finish off the morning.
Until next week!
