September started with a visit to Gulf Shores, Alabama, where we relaxed and spent time on the beach. A lot more fun than last year, when Gustav was visiting Nawlins. On September 20, Ava, Brian, and I have all really gotten involved in "St. Catherin's School". I volunteered to help with the school's Magical World, and Ava's class is called "Goofy Golf" at the school's upcoming fair in October. Ava attended Jackson's birthday party.
