Happy half birthday! In 6 months I will have a set of 7 year olds! Seems crazy, a good crazy. The girls celebrated by bringing muffins and cookies to school.
Crazy is also one of the words to describe yesterday's weather happenings. It was hot, humid and unbearable, with warnings and alerts of tornadoes, that I am sure a lot of people dismissed at first. Tornadoes is not something we worry about here, snow storms are more our thing. When I came home around 4:20 everyone was cranky due to the heat. We decided to go out for dinner to support “Allie’s 5 O’Clock Fund” Right before we were to leave My mom called to put the TV on, I could not believe what I was seeing, live coverage of a tornado going through the highway and crossing over to downtown Springfield which is just miles from our house. We made sure everyone we knew in that area was okay. It looked like the weather seemed to calm down, so we did go out to dinner, sounds silly now. The weather got bad again we waited it out while eating dinner, the kids were distracted enough in the loud restaurant that they did not seem too scared at the time. When we returned home and everyone had a hard time falling asleep, including me thinking of our friends who were effected by the tornado.
