Out of the Dark, into the light.....

FINALLY!! Whew, after 11 days and 4 hours without power, we finally have it back. And now we are trying to get life back to normal. After living in the heat for several days we finally broke down and bought a generator. So for three days after that we lived on air mattresses in the garage. It really was not too bad. After all the generator ran the TV that we moved into the garage. Then last Sunday my parents got their power back so.......we moved in with them for five days. Now we are back home and I am so thankful that it was not worse. And tomorrow the boys start school back again. Since our part of town was so damaged they ended up missing 9 days of school!!

And can you believe without all the modern conveinences of today that my boys actually played and GOT ALONG!!!
