October Update

It's been awhile, hasn't it?!  How time does fly during heavy schooling!  October, like September, revolved around books and co-op, with little time for anything else!

Kylen enjoyed getting back into guitar - more than I thought he would - and looks forward to practicing each day.  He liked his volleyball co-op class and playing games with friends during study hall.  Unfortunately, volunteering at the library was taking a toll on our schedule, so he had his last day in mid-October.  But he enjoyed his three months there, and we are thankful for the experience.  He has been able to do some volunteering at the Union Gospel Mission (UGM), although we are finding that many of their needs are during the day, when Greg is at work.  I'm not sure we'd be able to squeeze much more into our schedule right now, so that is probably for the best.  I'm sure God will put the time they spend there to good use.  Case in point, Greg has been going to a weekly men's Bible study he was introduced to through a gentleman he met there!

The apples class I co-taught at co-op was well received.  I hope to post about it . . . although I haven't even finished the post about the chocolate class I taught last spring!!  Sigh . . .   ;-)

I developed a new symptom in late October and won't go into details, but I saw an ob/gyn yesterday.  She thinks it is an infection, and I'm on antibiotics.  I hope she's right and that this is not a new direction my illness is going!  I had two very miserable weeks and am still needing to minimize sitting.  Prayers are appreciated!

I think the highlight of the month was going to my uncle's house on Halloween.  Good friends of ours were able to join us, and we all had a lot of fun.  I will try to do a post on it while catching up a bit.  I'm currently focusing much of my attention on planning our co-op's annual Christmas party, and Greg and Kylen have quite a bit of UGM training this month.  We also have a couple of Thanksgiving gatherings and an outing or two planned, which we are looking forward to.  God is good!!!
