Displacement from Ike

We're all still here and kicking, but we've started to spread out around the house for our entertainment. Susan and Brooklyn are upstairs watching lots of television and napping... Taylor has taken over the Wii and is playing with various opponents - either John, Paw Paw, or Maw Maw... and me a little bit. I've done some scrapbooking and continue to be interested in the news coverage of how things are going around the area.

Last night was so sweet, just about the time that the majority of us were going to bed - Taylor decided that we all needed to pray together. It was really nice to see her bring us all together around the bed that my in laws were going to be using... just a moment for us to all to thank God for how fortunate we have been throughout this storm. The six of them are displaced from their homes because of the power outage, but we still have plenty of food and water... and maybe even a little extra time to spend together.

There certainly are people everywhere you turn in the house, but at least we're all healthy and doing well. No major damage to speak of at any of our homes... there isn't much more we can ask for at this point.
