Getting Back to Normal
Things are trying to get back to normal here. The kids have been out of school all week long(feels longer). Our schools weren't hit so bad, but some of the others in our school district were. There is a lot of tree debris to clean up also. Matthew went back to football practice on Tuesday. We actually have a game tonight. This is not our scheduled game, but we are playing another school in our district just to try to get things back to normal. Even though we didn't have the massive damage as they did in other area's we have felt some of the impact. Lines at the gas pumps have been long since people from other area's that don't have it come here. We didn't have produce in the stores until yesterday. I was so excited to see a banana and a head of lettuce. It's amazing what we take for granted. As of yesterday, the church still didn't have power, but all the homes around it did. Makenzie's talk got moved to this Sunday so she is voting for no power. Makenzie will have her soccer game on Saturday and Jacob's team has a scrimmage(he still can't play till Wednesday). At least there are things for the kids to do now and I hope they will be back in school on Monday.
