Tornado of Fall 2013

I would have never believed it possible to have a tornado in November..I expect them in the summer, but fall?  On 11/17/13, a tornado ripped through NW Ohio, tearing apart communities still anxious from the tornado that killed 9 3 yrs prior. 
It was scary to hear the wind whipping, defintely stirring up memories from 2010.  They say a tornado never hits the same place twice, but it was pretty close to the exact same path.

A 1/2 mile from our home, there is a Circle K.  The gas island was destroyed, the awning was lying on the ground.

Across from the gas station, in both directions, buildings were destroyed, roofs & sides were torn off.  It's been 2 wks and they're still cleaning debris.

I'm thankful we are all safe and to my knowledge there were no deaths related to this one.  But I'll never doubt Mother Nature's wrath again!

You know it's Friday when...

Friday means double therapy day...we have it scheduled so Cai's 2nd day of therapy is on Bry's...saving time on driving to BG is all that matters!  I am able to watch the therapies in the observation room.  I prefer to watch both girls, which means 2 tv's.  Since there are only 4 tvs total, if there are a lot of people there, I'll only watch on 1 tv and flip back and forth.  I don't think there are enough words to sign them the praises they deserve!  They are doing such awesome things with my kiddos!  Bryleigh's speech is 90% intelligible and Cadence is getting A's & B's in school.  I'm so proud of them and am beyond thankful for the therapists they work with, both at BG & at their schools.  They have helped my Bry's speech & Cai's reading tremendously!
