WOW! The last week has been busy. We prepared the school and our houses for Irma. We bought water, food, batteries, and gas. We put up shutters, brought in plants, and made our pets comfy. Some of us stayed. Some of us left. We welcomed utility workers. We used power tools, sawed trees, picked up limbs, and took down shutters. Most important, we united together, we helped each other, we prayed for each other, and we grew in our understanding of what it means to rely on God. I think I'm ready to go back to school.
