Our Hurricane Evacuee's (Homeless)

Well, after waiting it out for a couple of days, our great friends and now hurricane evacuee's have decided to give up and come to Prosper for a much needed electricity fix!! As we all know, the hurricane hit Friday night into Saturday morning and as of tonight the Gerwick's are still 100% out of power in their Houston zip code.
I know they are under a lot of stress just trying to figure everything out, so we are so happy to be able to alleviate some of this stress by welcoming them with open arms for however long they need it. We are very blessed to be able to help out and to have our great new house that has enough space to accomodate 4 adults and 5 young children comfortably.
I am actually very excited to have Tanni here to keep me company during the day and to have someone to give a look and take a deep breath with when our kiddos are pushing us over the edge. I have to say, the weather has cooperated so nicely. When you are trying to keep 5 kids occupied, it helps to have great park/playground weather.
Anyway, to sum it all up, we love the Gerwick family dearly, and are so happy to have friends that feel comfortable enough with us to ask with no reserve to come stay with us for however long they need it.
