Wow! Near Tragedy

Evan was standing on the porch of the cabin at the family reunion when he heard his daughter scream from inside. Just as he entered the doorway to investigate a huge tree came down through the porch where he had just been standing, his car and his brother's truck.  Well one blessing will be that Charitie will not be driving across country by herself.  This family has had a lot of growing experiences this year.

Marie Campbell, Karin Cochran and me.  Thankful to see friends again. Karin and I have been friends since childhood. What a great example and influence she has been to me.

Precious Time with Charitie

After the zoo Evan headed out to his family reunion where he would meet up with his parent and oldest three daughters.  The movers had showed up the previous Monday and packed up their home to move it to Virginia.  Matthew would have his body cast remove just before they drive across country.  I was able to spend 4 days with Charitie, Matthew and Melissa.  A very sweet experience for me.

Charitie and Evan met me at the train station in Tacoma then we headed to the zoo with two in strollers.
