Well I have a good (really bad) excuse...

for not blogging in a while.... we had a house fire! Uhhhggg, but we are all safe Thank God! It happened in October and we are still out of our house....double uhhhhhggg. A poptart (or EVIL poptart as the kids call it) was left in the toaster. It was forgotten about and we left to go grab the boys from school. It was only a matter of 10 mins after my alarm company called the fire department. It was sooooo quick and scary and well just sad. During all of this I had an overwhelming sense of peace. It was obvious that this was all just STUFF. My family was safe and that was all that mattered. That peace has come and gone... most of the time it stays. Hotels, now a small apartment, CONTRACTORS, having to buy so much replacement stuff, and the kids emotions get trying at times. Still, we are very BLESSED! I just started back this semester and have 4hrs of field placement (yipppeeee) so I'm pretty busy. Still, I hope to get caught up on all my blogging. We have been doing soooooo much :-)
My new refrigerator had a hole burnt in it. The food inside was cooked! (naturally I had just grocery was FULL) The freezer was still cold and had frozen food days later.... amazing!

Two days before the fire Dax and I celebrated our 15 year of marriage! These are my flowers with fire damage in the background.

Our family motto!
