POWERLESS…

Two weeks ago, during a crazy thunderstorm, something happened to our modem and we were without the internet for a week.  A few days before the modem came in the mail, hurricane winds blew through Canton, and knocked out our power for 5 days.  So we have been living in the dark for 5 days and without the internet for 2 weeks!  Thankfully, we had hot running water so there is really NOTHING to complain about!  Some neighbors even brought us breakfast a fews days this past week!  Here are a few highlights from our week with no power…

We found out right before the game that our power was back on 🙂

It was an interesting week!  The kids booed when they found out the power was back on!  They loved bunking together and having candles all over the house.  It was actually pretty nice, Brad and I read at night instead of watching TV and I didn’t have to cook.  That was the best part!  Our family theme this year is to “Live Simply”, so I guess God gave us a crash course on that this week!
