September 2022

 The last couple of months have been insane, and I'm just now getting caught up! I've so enjoyed doing these monthly recaps as a way of helping me reflect on and remember all of the good things in our lives.

Josh and I got away to Louisville for a weekend, where he preached at Long Run Baptist Church. We got to spend some much-needed time just the two of us and also catch up with a few very encouraging friends.

Taylah and I escorted Haylee on a campus visit to Murray State. She's only a freshman in high school this year, but when we return in 4 years she'll be starting college, so we needed to do this now! She really loved it and is excited about college.

The girls and I went to our friends Trevor and Maggie's wedding. It was a beautiful ceremony. We didn't get to stay for much of the reception, because we had to get back to the boys, but we had a lot of fun.

I ran in my first ever 10K, and Josh and Haylee ran in the 5K! It was so much fun and felt amazing! My cousin, Jeff, also met us there and ran in the 10K. I was running to finish and Jeff was running to win. Which he probably could have done, but he miscounted and ran an extra lap around the course! He still came in 3rd in his age group.

Then we left for the most epic road trip of our lives. These will just be highlights, and I really need to sit down and write out more details of the trip some other time before the memories start to fade. We started out camping for two nights at Rocky Mountain National Park, where it was SUPER cold, wet, and windy. But also gorgeous.

We spent the weekend in Fort Collins, CO with the Thurmans and Josh preached at Overland Church where Zack pastors. Zack visited us in Malawi in February, and it was fun to finally get to meet his family and church.

We drove from there to Moab, UT and visited Arches National Park. The delicate arch hike was one of the things I was most excited about, and it did not disappoint!

From Arches, we drove to Zion National Park and camped there 3 nights. 

Then we ended the month camping for two nights at the north rim of the Grand Canyon! We all agreed that we wished we could have spent a lot more time there; it was so perfect.
