Who knew a hurricane could come barging through Cincinnati! Not so much rain, actually none at all, but high winds with gusts up to 75 mph. And who knew that the biggest tree in our backyard would fall into our house. By the grace of God, our house has no significant damage. The gutters will probably need to be replaced, and maybe the deck is scratched up. We don't know because we haven't had the tree removed yet. But we are so thankful to God that nothing happened to any of us or the house! God was really looking out for us because the umbrella in our patio table is still standing straight up, surrounded by tree branches, and Adam's climbing toy was not hit at all by the trunk of the tree. It's amazing!

|From Recycle Bins|
**Update: I typed this post several weeks ago but was unable to insert my picture of our bins, so it's been sitting in my *edit* list for a while. Today, I took our trash out to the curb in ONE trash can! Be proud!

Last Tuesday was Adam's first day of preschool. He's attending the same school he went to last year, but this year, he's going two days a week! Wow, what to do with my time! Well, it's been interesting considering Tyler usually takes a good morning nap. But, since we're on the go when it's time for him to nap, he's cat napping in the morning. I think he's going to adjust well simply because he really won't have a choice.

Sunday was Ben's birthday, and we had a great family celebration. Going out to dinner with our great friends on Saturday and just taking it easy on Sunday was pretty much the weekend for us. Adam is really starting to understand what birthdays are, so it will be so much fun when his third birthday comes next month! Oh, and try not to be too jealous of the beautiful "cake" I made.
