My Hero

Well Blogger isn't allowing me to upload pictures at this point so you'll just have to work with me here. Just imagine a good looking Irish man in a hard had and chaps lugging a chain saw up a tree. Got it? That's the picture i was trying up load. =)

Geoff, a.k.a. My Hero, and some other folks from the school here are spending the day down in Joplin helping to clear trees after that horrible tornado hit on Sunday. Joplin is about 150 miles from us He's excited to be able to put his skills to work helping others. It's really sad to hear of the lives lost in that storm and to see the destruction left behind.

I was able to upload that picture at least.
We have been under tornado watches off and on but haven't had to hit the shelters yet. We've had lighting, thunder, hail and crazy kids trapped indoors but other than that we've fared well. Thanks for your prayers and emails of concern.

I know we aren't' the only ones with dangerous weather. How is it in your area?

Enjoy your weekend and stay safe everyone!

We had a crazy storm move through last night while we were at Emily's graduation. We only had really strong rain...it was distracting and hard to hear the grad speaker, who was excellent.

THank God for Geoff and others like him helping out. The footage and stories from Joplin are heart-breaking. Everyone helping them and there are in our prayers!

The tornadoes and the mayhem they are creating are all in the news here! Praying that all of you are safe and doing well.
