For a week, J's sister and her children have been with us. They thought Odessa was a great place to escape hurricane IKE. They left this morning. We said our goodbyes with tears in our eyes... this time there were more tears in the adults eyes.
Kay's husband stayed to ride out the storm and help take care of his parents in Baytown, and sister Kelley, Amber and Ariel, rode out the storm in north Houston.
<- Kelley's house----BIG tree , didn't go through house, Thank you God! Our family has been blessed No one lost a house, No one was injured, No major catastrophe happend to our family. There were trees and fences down and shingles gone (they are probably in Ohio now) but no major damage. I have attached a few photos to show their houses. Thank you Lord for your protection, I pray for those who were not as fortunate. Give them strength, peace and comfort. Watch over the victims and continue to provide the way only you can.

<- the pool is not theirs... it is the neighbors...
I guess they are sharing for now.

Beginning of a new school year!

This post is a little late... School began August 25. I guess we have been a little pre-occupied.
Soccer and dance have begun...Enough said.
Allison is in the 3rd grade and Keely is in the 1st grade!
School is going well. They both have wonderful teachers and are doing well! I have 14 kiddos, they keep me on my toes! I love it!
