It feels like I just sat down to write my before the weekend blog and now the weekend is over! We ended up having a nice relaxing movie night last night instead of going to the party (which was cancelled due to rain) and watched "Eight Below". A good movie, but maybe not the best for a sensitive 5 year old who is particualrly fond of dogs since two of the dogs die in the movie. I have gotten pretty lax about screening movies before Bryn watches them - I may have to get a little more vigilant again. I know that I can't shield her from all the sad things in life, but I am thinking I can shield myself from having to watch her get upset during a movie!
We had a nice Sunday...The Bridges of Hope soup kitchen foray went well this morning - we fed about 135 today. We went to Christina and Jake's tonight for dinner and had a nice time. I am going to watch their 11 month old son Levi tomorrow - her parents were planning to be here but are flooded in in southern Kansas. I know many parts of the country are praying for rain, but it sure is causing some problems here. Evidently some of the oil refineries are under water and there is oil all over the town - Kansas has definitely had a bad year for weather related disasters this year. We have been very fortunate to only have minor flooding here that affected me only once when I had to backtrack due to a closed road trying to get to the college to teach a class.
Aaron hasn't heard yet from UMKC - not that big of a deal except I am sure our landlord is wondering if we are ever going to tell him whether we are going to stay or go! I figure as long as we are paying him, he is probably not going to get too upset...that is what I am hoping for anyway!
