September began with a trip to the Colorado Springs Balloon Festival. During Labor Day weekend, hundreds of balloons launch from Memorial Park each morning. Then they come back in the evening for a "balloon glow." Not being morning people, we opted for the evening show this year. Maybe next year we'll make it downtown for a launch.
The day after Labor Day, we welcomed the 51st class of the Focus Leadership Institute. (I can't believe I've been doing this for 10 years and 31 classes now.)
Josh spent most of September traveling on a video project for USAA (well, he was a subcontractor for the subcontractor for the contractor for the project for USAA. :)) He went to Washington, D.C., San Antonio and San Diego (pictured below)
We also went to our first family USAFA football game with the local Institute alumni and fall students.
