We won the Ryder Cup!

Chris and Bruce attended the final day of the Ryder Cup, held at the PGA's Valhalla golf course just a few miles from home. It was a great experience!

The lights are back on!

Finally we have power - yea! We got power back about 4:30 on Sunday after almost exactly one full week without it. Going without power really makes you appreciate how wonderful our modern days lives are. We are considering a no power day once a month just to keep us mindful. Thanks to all who have helped us during this time! Andrea

Still Without Power

We still do not have power after Sunday's strange category 1 hurricane like winds that hit Louisville on Sunday afternoon. The girls went back to school today but had a 3 day break due to power outages across the city. We had already planned on having a special week with my parents and brother staying with us for Ryder Cup. It feels like we are camping. Mom is getting very good at cooking on the grill. Chris has taken advantage of the lack of lights to get some great views of Jupier with his telescope. Keep your fingers crossed that we are lucky enough to get power back today! - Andrea

This is a picture of a car that Chris saw when he was trying to get home during the storm!

Jeff and Debbie lost a tree during the storm. Chris enjoyed helping them cut it up!

Cynthia's 8th grade year

Cynthia's friend had a big 13th birthday party the weekend before school started. Cynthia and her friends (including her "boy" friend Nicholas) had a ball. Cynthia is loving being the top class of the school. She is also still exploring her high school options.

Vacation #2 2008

Gulf Shores is a very relaxing vacation. You get up in the morning, eat breakfast and then decide whether the day will start at the beach or the pool. The beach is beautiful and the condo that we stay at is very nice. I personally like to get up early and walk the beach. - Andrea
