Bible Study Fellowship started Wednesday and we are all happy to be back. I thought Daphne would be going with David this year, but since she's still 5 she gets to come with me. She's happy to be back in her class with old and new friends. Christian ran freely into his classroom this year instead of wrapping himself around my leg and wailing. That was nice. This year's study is the life of Moses, Exodus through Deuteronomy. If you need a good study, we can't recommend this one enough, so look for one in your area. Or come to mine and be my friend! (Or go to David's and be his friend.)

After BSF was peach canning time. Jonas took a nice long nap while the big kids stole peaches yet still wanted me to fix them snacks and were generally in the way. There is just no telling which child is my favorite.

Thursday we gathered pumpkins and gourds from my parent's house. (Thanks, Dad, for your wild gourd patch.) This house is a dream for the holiday decorating, putting a crimp in regular unpacking. The guest room is still a disaster, but hey, we have pumpkins!
