Well the weather has cooled off, the kids are back in school and there are signs that September is really upon us!

This Sunday we'll have the Blessing of the Backpacks at the 10:30 service as well as our first Youth Group meeting! The choir will wear their robes and Verger Pat will once again lead the beautiful procession into the church.

Before the summer ends (officially) just a few highlights from the Summer of '09. . .

The children's garden was a beautiful addition to our grounds!

The picnic was once again a great success with our longest and best horseshoe tournament in recent memory!

We had a blast at the Jackal's baseball game -- it was fun to see Alexa get a ball from the dugout and Artie loved the cap we brought him back from the game.

A new "clique" was formed.

The nursery school ceiling was replaced. (thank you GS)

The pool party at Jacqui's was a delightful afternoon. . .

Kathleen's 80th birthday brunch was a great 8:30 service event. (And we all have renewed our love for cheese grits)

Lots of our kids were sent off to school --some a little further than others.. .

All in all, it was a great summer!

Love to you all, Susan
