Well, here is an attempt to catch you up on the happenings of the Maney house...
1. Labor Day. We spent the labor day weekend in Houston visiting my (sarah) family. It was so much fun. We got to eat at one of our very favorite restaurants - Chuy's. We hung out in the pool. We had a "girls" and "boys" activity. The girls went to lunch at a unique place outside of town and then went shopping at Katy Mills. The boys played frisbee golf. We also had our very first annual family bowling tournament. We saw old friends, drank good coffee, ate really great food, and slept in. It was a wonderful holiday.

2. September. Was pretty much a blur. We helped out with a training event at our church. We did the Race for the Cure. We were really busy with life. It seemed the slowish pace of the summer quickly changed gears starting in September. One thing that was a huge blessing was that the stuff with my work finally was settled. I got a nice raise and a job reclassification. I was so glad to have all that done with! I also got a pretty nasty cold which completely took everything out of me.

3. October. Well hear we are. It is still relatively warm outside. I really want fall weather. I am ready to wear sweaters and jackets and long-sleeve tshirts. Paul had to take his first business trip to set up a bank branch near Dallas. It was crazy that that was the first time we had spent the night apart since he left staff with InterVarsity. It was quite unusual before for us to go that long before one of us went on a trip. The great thing is that I don't travel nearly as much with my job anymore. This has made life feel a little less frantic.

I'll leave you with some pictures from our Labor Day weekend.
