Safety in the Storm

We had really bad storms last night.  A friend of ours called us around 1:30am to make sure we were awake.  We were not.  The only noise that wakes me is a crying kid.  I can sleep through anything else.  Once we did wake up we heard the tornado sirens.  James and I got all the girls out of bed and into the hallway.  He watched the news and we were right in the path of tornadoes.  After about 10 minutes it had passed by us.  Praise God we were unharmed.  The girls were a little stirred up and had a difficult time going back to sleep.  It was still storming.  We have old storm windows so it always sounds like they are going to rattle right out into the floor.  We were not in bed for two minutes before Monkey came strolling in. 

So if you needed one more good reason to homeschool -- it is not having to get the kids out of bed early in the morning when you are awaken in the middle of the night and lose sleep due to tornado warnings.  I did, however, forget to put our dinner in the crockpot this morning.  Frozen pizza anyone?
