Crazy wind storm

On Wednesday, we had a rain storm hit our area, nothing out of the ordinary there. The wind was pretty strong and we kept watching the tree branches sway. Out of nowhere a micro burst struck our yard and snapped a limb right off of one of the trees in the backyard.  I am grateful our trampoline didn't go flying. It was strange, how some chairs were tipped over while others weren't.

We've had some behavioral issues with one of our kids who has been talking back to me and seems dissatisfied with most everything. Talking has not really changed anything, so I suggested we tried something else - looking outward through service and work.

So, instead of doing it all himself, Todd engaged the kids in the cleanup process. After some grumbling, they actually had fun cutting and hauling some of the smaller branches. It took two days and a new chainsaw, but it is done!
