we have thousand of pesky rodents living in the woods around us. they get to our bird feeders and eat all the food, they get into a storage shed and make a mess, and they have been dropping in number one at a time. ellen and cody love to spot them and go hunting with me. cody really does start to squeal if he sees one out the window. its pretty funny.

it has been a couple weeks now since our last post. everything with the youth group is good and busy and growing. the kids are getting huge. ellen speaks the whole dictionary it seems. fall is in the air. in summary, things are good.

wanted to keep you guys in the loop. the newest development has been a new job for me (scott). i have taken a interim youth pastor position at osage hills. it is the church that we have been a part of since we got here. i am 3 wednesday nights and a couple outside events seasoned now. it has been fun, and extremely stretching already. the timeline is not really sure. i was hired along with another guy to keep the boat afloat while the search team looks for a permanent hire. i might be there for 5 months or just a couple more weeks. only god knows.

we got into the park with enough daylight to make some supper set up our tent and fall asleep to the sounds of the river. we had a site that was 10 feet from the river. extremely peaceful. great way to fall asleep. even better than a fan.
this was our first full day at the smoky mountains. we got up and out of the campground at about 11. we spent a little time at the welcome center and then headed up the new found gap road to find our trailhead. on the way up we decided to climb the chimney tops. it was a really cool trail that crossed 3 rivers. at the top, as you can see, there was a rock face that you had to climb to get the view from the peak. tessa and i took turns making the trek and the other stayed with the kids at the bottom of the rock face. on the way back down then we spent time playing in the river and jumping from some of the rocks.
