A few updates...

Happy August!

We've had a couple of busy weekends with a week of Vacation Bible School in between.

Here are a few highlights:

Beware: I'm in the process of becoming addicted to the photo hosting community,
Flickr. If you have any interest in photography and don't want to become a victim of "Flickritis," I recommend that you steer clear. All that to say, there are a couple of links to my Flickr photostream in my sidebar, but I may also begin to post a few pictures here that will link to that picture at Flickr. I will also try to let you know when there are other related pictures over at Flickr that aren't posted here. Consider yourselves warned.

OK moving on:

Last weekend, we went to a hot air balloon festival, the Ohio Challenge, to which Christy's sister, Becky, had invited us. While in the area, we also went to one of our Nephew's baseball games, which was won by his team.

Though it may look like it, Nate did not pitch and catch at the same time. He's fast, but not that fast. He did, however, play, at least, catcher, shortstop, and pitcher in the same game. He's quite talented.

Back at the balloon festival, despite some poor weather during a small part of the afternoon, we did get to see skydivers and hot air balloons.

This was Hannah's first real year at VBS. I worked with a group of 2nd and 3rd graders. For those really interested in seeing a bunch of kids you probably don't know, there are nightly slideshows (complete with witty comments!!!) at the church website. Some of the images there are mine, others were taken by -- well -- others.

Each night, VBS let out about the same time as the sun was setting. Fortunately for me, the one night that Hannah stayed home with Christy, there was a particularly nice sunset and I was able to find a cornfield and a tree to use as foreground. Here are the results of that evening.
