1) We had a little playdate at our house. Thank You, Lord. I could not take another day of a bored 3-year-old! Jackson's friend Nathan came over to play while his mommy went to help our co-worker out. Her house flooded during the day of rain, bless her heart. Y'all, the water is so crazy. Our neighborhood is not far from a major creek, so all our water retention spaces and bayous are totally full, if not brimming over. If those weren't there, we'd be dealing with water in our house, too. I drove around last night and there was still tons of water on certain roads. Also, in those pictures of the sky looking orange, what is so weird is that those are clouds all lit up and not just the sky itself. If you look real close you can see where the clouds end. Anyway, Jenn brought us some particularly good Chick-fil-a and we enjoyed it over lots of great girl talk.
2) We have Bible study at church tonight. FYI, I convinced Curt to make a podcast of his Wednesday night lessons. If you're interested, here's the link.
3) I ordered this shirt
this family tree kit
and one of these fun capes
from my friend Beth's etsy store: Love, September. I'm so excited! Beth has a son and a daughter, so naturally she has really fun things for girls and boys.
She also makes quilts from your kids' baby clothes. (Hint, hint. Our 7th anniversary is coming up, Curtis Jones!)
4) My sis has three posts up at the LPM blog about her Compassion trip to Calcutta. Check out the latest one here. And you can "meet" the Jones family's newest Compassion child here. We thank You for this honor, Jesus!
