weekend getaway

This past weekend, Nolan and I were able to get away for a long weekend. It was WONDERFUL! We headed to Northern Wisconsin were some friends of ours have a cabin right on Long Lake. We enjoyed 4 days of relaxing, boating, riding atv's, watching bald eagles, napping in the hammock, playing games, roasting marshmallows, and enjoying eachother's company.

the clean up continues...

Many of you have heard by now that a big storm rolled through Eldora Sunday morning. Most every house is damaged, including my parents. They had baseball size hail and hurricane force winds, knocking out 14 windows, holes in the roof and siding, many downed trees and a very large mess. They even have hail damage inside their house... yes, that's right! There are dents in the walls from hail inside their house. We were there to help in the clean up yesterday and I headed back there for the day today. Alot has been accomplished, a lot yet to do- but praising the Lord that everyone is safe and my parents are well.

Here are a few pictures of my parent's house but they don't even begin to show the extent of the damage. The pictures don't do justice!
