It has been a really fun past couple of weeks. I traveled to Las Vegas and San Francisco/San Jose to teach some courses for LifeWay. It was a very interesting experience for me, as I have not been to either of those places. It is really crazy how all of the hurricanes have been affecting America. Of course, my brother Trae decided that he would move (well, actually, his apartment was destroyed) to Galveston after Gulfport got blown away. Our church sent a group down to Mississippi today. They are going to Ovette. I don't actually think that I have ever been there.

Somehow I knew when I started this shin-dig that I would not be very good at updating and alas, I have not. Since the last post, Abbey and I have been busy traveling and working. We spent Labor Day weekend at the amazing home of some of our friend's parents. It is right on the lake and so we rode jet-ski's (Well, Abbey only rode for about 2.3 minutes - something about a previous accident where her husband (me) made her fall off - well, actually, the whole thing flipped), tubes, and water skis. It was a blast. Our friends serve with us as Minister of Education at the church. Danny and Michelle have two beautiful daughters, Carah and Cate, whom Abbey and I totally enjoy spoiling! This past weekend (well, really it was like a 26 hour period between 6:00p on Friday at 10 p on Saturday), I was in Las Vegas where I taught a Preschool conference. Contrary to what one might think, there are some VERY nice Christian people in the sin-city. It was exciting to see these people so excited about teaching preschoolers at church. I will be teaching a very similar conference in San Francisco this weekend. I will have a little more time to breathe at this event. Abbey is going next weekend to the Beth Moore Conference which she is really excited about. School is going well for Abbey. She is an excellent teacher and has worked hard to teach her children that although a southern drawl is a wonderful thing, it is possible to speak and write correctly. I just wish that I could learn better grammar so she would have to proof everything I do! We're gearing up for the Harvest Festival here at church which should be really exciting. Above is a picture of some of my older kids at church!
