Well he we are with Summer coming to an end. It has been an unusually dry three months here, usually we get a few rains weekly but very little this year. Hopefully our heavier wet months, September and October, will bring us the rain we're used to.

Hannah is bound for China, flies to Texas on Aug 6 to handle some visa stuff. She flies for Beijing on August 21. She will be in China for two semesters, then return to Austin and try to get some work experience. In other words, we will not all be together until maybe Christmas 2016.

Faith and John start their semester on August 24. Thankfully, this is just a warm up for Faith. She will be back to spend December through August 2016 to finish up high school. For her, it's a lite semester of dual credit, and getting ready for full time studies in a public education setting.

So it will be a very odd Fall for us, with most of our four children in college while Tim stays behind. We still have him for a few more years. :-)

Now the advice is rolling in about "empty nest", such as acquiring new hobbies. If having nine children at home is an empty nest, I'd like to know what a full nest looks like. Understand this, that the earliest I will have to think about an "empty nest" is when I turn 62. I think by then, sleep will be my hobby.
