Thanks everyone for your well wishes. I went over to the house today to check in and could not believe my eyes. The 60 acre "preserve" that burned all night comes right up to our property line in the back and it is completely burned right up to our property. As a matter of fact, it is still smoldering.
This picture was taken from the cage that covers our pool. The green grass is our property and you can see right where the property ends is where the fire ends. Talk about a close call! There are pieces of ash and things all over the yard like this but I can certainly deal with that. The fire dept is still in the neighborhood and the news cameras are right next to the house but it looks like everything is under control.
Here's some better pics of the house. This is the awesome pool Wanna come for a swim?
and here is the back of the house looking thru to the front. I just can't wait to get in there.
Last night there was a little concert at Julianne's school. Here she is with a couple of her friends.
If you look really closely you can see Richard and I way in the back row. Oh and even better news. Turns out I can keep the kids at their current school which they are thrilled about!
Well we are getting ready to go to Richard's company picnic at a hotel on the beach. I'll be bringing my camera and posting about it tonight or tomorrow. Thanks again for all your well wishes. So, How was your day?
