The Scene in Eureka

C2 flipping out on the trampoline!

And last, but not least....

In J's own words:
Yes, C2 does flips on the trampoline!  He sometimes lands on his feet and sometimes not quite.  I don't know, I was impressed.

The fall pictures are from our hike at the lower lake.  It is where the boys and I go frisbee golfing.  It was a gorgeous day out, and we had a lot of fun collecting leaves.  Each of us had one leaft that we thought would be the biggest, only once you picked on you couldn't trade it in.  And then we all collected the ones that we thought were the prettiest.

We also carved the pumpkins Sunday evening and roasted the pumpkin seeds.

Burning Questions for Parents

"How do we know everyday what is a worthwhile investment of our time and what will burn up, straw at the end of time? How do we cultivate not simply well-trained minds, but nurture holistic, well-lived lives? How do we work everyday towards raising up children, who are not merely academic automatons, but exuberant, soul-healthy, worshipers of God, committed to meaningful, eternal Kingdom work? How do we set our ladders against the right wall, and make the opportunity of today count for eternity?" (From A Holy Experience).

If YOU grapple with these questions, won't you set aside a few quiet minutes to go to this post and enjoy the pictures first - then read, think and pray!  Let me know your response to these "Seven Rungs".
