Way to go, Tyler!

Last week, on September 21, Tyler took a very important Air Traffic Control exam. It is called the AT-SAT and is similar to the college entrance SAT exam except that this one is for Air Traffic Control. It is a long 8 hour exam, and we (and many others) prayed that Tyler would have the stamina to finish well. Following the exam Tyler reported to us that he finished in only 5 hours and he felt good about how it went. A day later he received the results. He scored very well on his exam, earning him "well qualified" which we trust will mean a better job opportunity down the road. Many thanks to all of you who were praying for him. We are so proud of you, Tyler! God gets the glory!
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!

The Colors of Fall

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!

Hiking Stanley Canyon

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.
