Flooding and New Orleans

Wow, what a horrible weekend for most people in the midwest!

Terre Haute had severe flooding this weekend, and so many people are in need of help. Our church is currently taking phone calls for anyone who would like to help. Their number is 812-234-7100. If you are not sure what you can do, but you have the time to do it, please call the number! I know that people are desperately needing it.
Also, some members of our church headed to New Orleans to help with the rebuilding there. Please take a moment to pray for them and the people they will be helping.
We are all doing well and we hope that all of this severe weather is over. Unfortunately, it looks like there are more storms headed our way this morning. Please pray for all of the flooding victims.
The kids and I went to a friend's house on Saturday for a cookout. Well, it was a pretty nasty day, and we stayed inside most of the time. The kids had a great time. It is great getting know people in our new town. They live just down the road from us, so that was nice! Jaden loves that he is making new friends. Afterward, we went to Hobby Lobby and I picked up a few new things.

I also got some more scrapbook paper. I just love Hobby Lobby. Their sales are great! I already ordered some cute thumbtacks for the board from Etsy. I am thinking of getting one of these to hang from one of the hooks.
Yesterday, it took us over 4 hours to get to Terre Haute because of the flooding on 70. So, we didn't have much visiting time before church. We don't have much planned for this week. Tuesday and Thursday are softball, and Wednesday we head to Carmel for Jeff's dr appt and a little fun. Have a great week everyone and keep all of the flood victims in your prayers.
