9 on 9-9!!

Nine months, that is! Our little girl is getting so big! Just today she stood for about three seconds on her own without holding on to anyone or anything. She has us laughing nearly all day long with her adorable and inquisitive personality. When she hears us laugh then she'll start laughing, too, which only makes us laugh more! There's a lot of laughing going on these days. This reminds me of a Psalm we printed on our wedding program: "Our mouths were filled with laughter,our tongues with songs of joy...The Lord has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy." (Psalm 126: 2-3). Speaking of our wedding, we just celebrated our three year anniversary on September 15th and are truly filled with thankfulness and joy!

The first month of school has been filled with lots of excitement and activity. The Welcome Back BBQ in August included a massive game of tug-of-war, which just seems painful to me!

Our first Nav Night (the large group gathering on campus) was on the first day of class and meets in the Kansas Room of the Kansas Union (easy enough to remember at the University of Kansas!)

The first few meetings centered around the story of the Prodigal Son (the son, the older brother, and the father), and Jason spoke on the son. I had a babysitter that night (thanks Grandma!) so I was able to go and hear him speak. He did an amazing job and really is an excellent public speaker.

Two of Elisabeth's student friends, Roshni and Kaitlynn, saw her this past month and I wanted to post some "then and now pics" of her with them. The first set are when Elisabeth was about one month and the second set are of her at nine months. It's so fun to see how much she's changed!

Happy Fall!
