Thunder! Thunder!

Thunder is the theme today.  Our day started at 3:30 with one throwing up, we were to get up at 4 anyway had to make a decision as to what to do. Poor Caeli had to endure the trip not feeling good. She seems to be over it now.  While the big kids are at their first Thunder game with Steve and Uncle Tom, me and the littles are back in the hotel watching the famous Gary England discuss the current tornado outbreaks while listening to the thunder outside. From our vantage point it looks like the bad stuff is going to go south and east of us. Our old stomping grounds around Lawton have sure taken a beating tonight. Our old friends in the Snyder area are in our prayers. Speaking of which, we got to have a very nice catch up session with some dear friends this afternoon. It was really good to visit with Mr. & Mrs. Boo Niggly! I forgot to get a picture. But do have a couple of our travels here today, The Promised land, and the Thunder game! Uh oh! I am afraid Mikelle may be afflicted now....

Lizzard kisses & tick checking

First Fridays are back for the year. Aspen, Malachi, Mikelle & Caeli were up and at their school early this am to get done in time to go to work with Dad and prepare. Denver got to experience filing and paying taxes for the first time....such a joy...not! After we 'filed & payed' his share, we baked a batch of cookies and some granola and headed to the refuge as well. We were able to write a note to include in a time capsule they buried tonight, that will be opened in 90 years.... That is if some one is around to do it! Haha! Malachi got kissed by a lizard, Caeli and Katie got a first friday shirt, and all got their fill of some yummy cookies. When we got home the girls like to check dad's head for ticks...that's the picture with the flashlight :) Zeta has even picked up the skill! Soccer & firewood cutting is on the agenda for tomorrow, maybe it will rain and we can take a drive in the south east direction...
