A Crazy Week

Mark was in Atlanta from the Monday my parents left until that Thursday.  What an eventful week that was.  Right after he arrived in Atlanta, his phone was stolen and there was a tornado that took out electricity for awhile, which made it very hard to stay in touch.  We worked hard at finding different ways to stay connected until they sent his new replacement phone.  Luckily, he still had his computer, so we were able to go old school and google chat.  He also would drive to the Verizon store in between his meetings, and call/text me on the model phones there.  It all felt very high school.

One night that he was gone, we had a freak storm here that took out huge trees in our neighborhood.  I thought our whole house was going to fly away!  It was pretty scary.

Luckily, we had a few sweet friends that kept us busy while he was gone.  We also had swim lessons and bible study to keep our minds off his absence.  (The girls are doing so well swimming, by the way! I'm so proud of them!)  Anyway, we were oh-so-glad to have him home when he arrived early Friday morning.

The weekend was a full one!  The Stouts invited us over for lunch and we went with them to the Biltmore in the afternoon.  That night we had a few families over for dinner and fun around the bonfire.   It was a great time!  I forgot to get any pictures that night!
