Our teens visited a different school this year to take the PSAT. Testing commenced in the still-dark moments of 7:30 am. I ran errands around town while they penciled their vast knowledge into those rows of circles.
Returning in the daylight, I was astonished to note some striking architectural details featured on the high school’s main entrance. Do you see them?
Of course, our ears registered loud curses flung through those halls. And later, Christian and Rebecca commented on several behaviors that surprised them. But what I noticed most were the crosses standing sentinel over the public school’s main entrance. Jesus reigns, indeed!

summer’s last hurrah
Terry’s brother, Dan, offered to take us out on Higgins Lake one gorgeous day in September. Dan towed his boat all the way from Texas to tour the lakes up here in Michigan!
Of course, the Great Lakes are spectacular, but Higgins Lake is the most beautiful lake I have ever seen. So many different colors and depths.
Those are Rebecca’s feet danging from the upper deck. Although air temps were warm (in the mid 70s), water temp was only 62*. A bit too chilly to jump off into the water:)
What a vibrant green!
Dan was amazed at the clarity, explaining that lakes in Texas are typically murky.
Tree colors, especially at the north end of the lake, were gorgeous. Unusual to experience such a warm day with those autumn leaves.
Captain Dan gave Christian a chance to drive the boat.
Thank you, Captain Dan! Have a safe trip back to Texas!
Come back next year, so we can go again, please?!?

Meet new little cousin Landon!
Rebecca and I spent a day caring for Landon back in August. He and his family, including big brother Caden, are temporarily living across the field from us at Terry’s sister’s house.
Landon is such a cheerful baby!
During Landon’s naptime, Tucker sat on the couch with Rebecca.
