Fall is here and so is the Crazy Schedule!

Well, I say Fall is here, but really it's just Fall's schedule that is here, not so much the wonderful crisp, cool air or the leaves changing colors or the ability to wear a long sleeve t-shirt. But oh well, that will all come soon enough. The structure and constant activites of the Fall have begun. I had my first small group with my girls last Wednesday and we had our first leader's meeting and we went to our first Shoreline (Watermark's high school service) on Sunday night. It has been fun. Busy, but fun.

As well as my normal schedule picking up, I've had a fun-filled couple of weekends. Labor Day weekend, I went to Sante Fe, NM with my family. Every year we go on some sort of vacation and this was definitely one of the more relaxing. We ate, slept, layed by the pool, walked around the farmer's market, ate some more, walked around the town, and just hung out. It was really a lot of fun. It was great to be together as a family before Rebekah left for Philadelphia this week. Since we won't get to see her until Christmas, it was fun to get to be there & see her before she took off!

Our Trip to Pasqual's...so yummy!

Deborah & Rebekah walking through town:

This weekend, I had a jam packed Friday night that included dinner, The Dive (a Watermark Single's event), and then a concert. It was fun to hang out with some girls who all serve in Student Ministries and get to know some of our new leaders! Saturday I got my hair cut, and then I headed out to Granbury to see my grandparents. It's always nice to get out of Dallas and sit on their back porch that faces the Brazos river and just relax. My parents were also there, because they had dropped Rebekah off at the airport on Thursday. It was fun to see them two weekends in a row.

It has been a great couple of weeks, and I am so excited about all the things I have coming up in the Fall. I have a retreat with the High School girls, 5 weddings on the calendar, one more section of the CPA exam, a college roommate get together, and hopefully a half marathon in December. It's going to be busy, but I think it will be great!
