She was kind. We had a few limbs down in the yard and a few hours without power while we slept. Our church family worshiped this morning by natural light with windows open to the last of her gale.

Yesterday, while the rain and wind swirled outside, we baked; we played; we puzzled. It was a sweet family day. Except for when I walked outside to play in the rain with the kids and inadvertently locked us all out of the house... all while my husband was at a funeral. Yep, I could have done without that.

Today, the sun came out and we soaked up that last official day of summer break. Well, possibly the last day. The power is still out at the kids' school.

My littlest might begin Kindergarten tomorrow! I certainly hope so. One more day of anticipation may be more than we can take.

  1. I'm so glad to hear that Irene was gentle on you. It sounds like you made the most of your family time. Making cookies rates high on our weekend list of things to do. Take care and good luck tomorrow with school. Fingers crossed for the electricity to be all working again as normal!
