We're still in the midst of Frankenstorm Sandy, but I think that we are through the worst. Thankfully we have only lost one tree so far and have had a little bit of flooding in the church (we expected this and were prepared). Unbelievably, we have yet to loose power (though it is quite possible that we will before morning). Because of the strong wind, we have moved the little ones into our room (which is an interior room of the house) to sleep. God Willing, no more trees will fall.
Please keep our families (and Elizabeth!) in your prayers. They are facing the worst of the storm right now. Also, I found out that Barbara Curtis (I was very influenced by her writings on using Montessori Methods in the home early on in our parenting journey) suffered a massive stroke and it is not likely that she will regain consciousness. Please pray for her and for her family!
