Lack of Sleep

The past week and a half has went by so fast and with little sleep. The crazy part is that Labor Day weekend marks the END of the summer season for Alaska. Most stores and shops, that open for the summer, close. Folks start winterizing their cars and campers. Even the trees think it is fall here and have begun changing colors. Our camping is over until Memorial Day, boo hoo. On the other hand, I am looking forward to slowing down enjoying our saturday mornings on the couch watching game day. I am so ready for college and NFL football and am so glad it is here.

For the past week or so, my dad came up for a visit. It was superfun. We camped, went on a cruise of Alaska'a coast, hiked a little and watched the salmon running, fished, panned for gold, and went to the fair. I took a million zillion pics so these may come over the next few days.
My dad left sat morn and we then hit the road for family camp at bible camp. It was so much fun. the camp is set seven miles back on a dirt road. We had to borrow someone's 4x4 so we could go, the ol' minivan wasn't going make it. We would have been stuck in the first half mile.

The kids are getting so big and have thoroughly enjoyed the summer. Noah starts preschool next week. I think Caleb and I are going to miss him while he is there. I have some great videos of the kids to post. I can't believe they are growing up so fast!!
Here is just a sampling of the pics.....

They definitely look like little campers to me. I love their expressions. You're right...they are growing up fast. Funny how that happens. People say that all the time, but it's one of those things that's actually true.
So glad you had such a great time with your Dad's visit! Unlike you, I'm a bit sad that football is here again. I lose a lot of husband time at this part of the year. I keep saying "well, just learn to like it....but I have no clue what's going on in the game." But I suppose it's something he'll get to share with his boys...and I do look forward to that!

Glad you had fun with your dad! I almost called you to catch up during the AL game but Mark suggested I wait till halftime and by then I was prob asleep. Do you watch the games live or are they delayed?
