We've had a busy few days!

Holly and her boys came for a quick visit. Silas didn't even get to see them!!

My mom, Holly and I sang at a ladies event at our church. We haven't sang together in like 6 or 7 yrs! But we pulled it off and had a good time.

Today we had a luncheon for the Women's Auxiliary Board at North Greenville. Nice lunch, nice ladies...babysitters who fed my kids lunch.

BUT the rain!!! Oh my goodness. It has rained for 3 days. And today it literally rained ALL day! I'm not complaining. We have needed it. Then after school we got a tornado warning. I don't know why, but Silas freaked out. He was crying and saying what if the roof flew off...what about his frogs (a little aquatic cube Pa bought him)...what about his teacher, Mrs. Bright...it was strange. We ended up spending about an hour in our closet downstairs. The entire university was sent to certain places.

Silas didn't want to come out of the closet, but eventually he believed us that it was safe. Although he wanted to leave the frog in my closet just in case we had to go back in there tonight.

All is well now. Everyone was tired and ready for bed.

On a funny note...my college roommate, Jill, called me this morning and said something to this effect:
I know you are not going to be shocked at what I'm about to tell you, but we were late taking JJ to his first day of kindergarten this morning. I don't know what happened, but we didn't hear the alarm. We didn't let on to JJ that it was a big deal. And besides, he was only about 10 minutes late.

Even when Jill and I roomed together she was late. She NEVER heard her alarm. HA! I heard it EVERYTIME it went off. Not much has changed. But really, it was an honest mistake, the weather and all. Besides, if JJ didn't realize it...no big deal. You are a great mom, Jill and I love you!

I've been meaning to ask you if that hurricane was headed your way, but you must just be getting some of the rain?
