Fall is in the air

This is my favorite season of the year.

For whatever the reason I love the cool mornings and the glow in the sunshine. There is a crispness to each day that is reminiscent of days gone by and a fore shadow of colder days to come. We have been in school full swing for weeks now, and there is a comfortable pace to each day.

Now for a reality check!

Somewhere in the walls of our school room a hive of bees has been nested and the newest of their offspring greet us eagerly in the mornings. It is a full fledged bee killing fest every morning!

We are anxiously awaiting the arrival of the team from Encounter Revival Ministries. Our family loves being host to a few members each year, and we pick up our two new temporary family members on Saturday which begins a flurry filled week of chapels in the morning, Bible studies at night, and too much hilarity and insanity in between to adequately tell of! There is also a new Summit Teens commercial that will debut on Sunday, which I will post next week for all to endure enjoy!

They guys have been bitten with salmon spawning fever, and the river calls to them like some long lost memory they simply cannot ignore! They eagerly face the bracing morning chill like a friend and head down to High Falls any chance they get! 4 large Salmon to date... I am praying for some deer in my freezer this year!

To get the scope of this picture, remember Levi is now 13, 5'7" tall, and that fish is huge!

The craziest thing about this trip is, Dan managed to get the fishing in before work...but not the "finishing" in. He dropped off boys and salmon, changed and left! The filleting, cleaning and bagging have been left to the boys. And Savannah! She is the cheerleader!

I warned you!

Notice I am not out there... I have no tolerance for anything from the water. Not fish, shrimp, lobster, or crocodile! (Which I have tasted, by the way! ) But... I will be right there when they are all done with the hose and pine sol to wash off the patio!

If you are not "out there" then who took the picture?

Did I ever tell you I have a very nice 12x zoom camera? I can get "the shot" from great distances!

I love the Jalowiecs ;)
I noticed the Lord blesses all of you with time and energy because you do everything unto Him! Me and Mama were just discussing how you all are always up to something! Fishing, Africa, school,...and I said, yeah-and now picking families up from the airport! I love it ;)
God bless you each! SEE YOU SOON!

Found you on 5 minutes for mom. Wow, what a picture! I've enjoyed looking around your blog tonight! God bless you, sister!

So jealous! I mean, so happy for you that you have fresh salmon! We can't get that here without paying an arm or a firstborn.

And I'm with you. Stay inside to get the pic. Windows and doors closed. Blood. Ew. *fainting*
