Tyler recently bought a salt water fish tank at a second hand shop and is slowly starting to stock it with fish. If only they (the fish) would stop eating each other! The lion fish (in photo) is ruling at the moment.
Tyler is thankful for his friend, Ben, from BFA, who is also studying at LeTourneau (see bottom picture). They live on the same floor in Tyler Hall (the name if his dorm). And the city of Tyler, TX, is just down the road!

Yesterday we took a Sunday drive to see the aspens changing into their brilliant fall "wardrobe". The colors we saw were so bright and beautiful and vivid; it was not possible to capture on camera the panorama we kept seeing as we were driving (and stopping to take pictures)! Tim calls it God's watercolors. I think that the Master Artist takes a great deal of delight in splashing His creation with such extravagant color. And He gives it to us to enjoy!

Early this morning we did a very challenging hike above Colorado Springs to Stanley Canyon and reservoir. Family friend, Chad, an officer and periodontist in the Air Force, recently moved to the Springs and took us on this hike (which required military I.D. since it is on USAFA property). Today was another amazing chance to enjoy God's beautiful creation - the aspens beginning to change color, the panoramic views from up high, and Chad's two adorable dogs with boundless energy just like their master!
By the way, Tim does not usually hug trees! However, this aspen has an unusually huge trunk, so we took a picture to show the size of it.
