Last week Wednesday seemed like a normal day. Work for Brent and myself and daycare for the boys. Brent was supposed to get together with his Bible Study guys that night but ended up skipping. There was too much he wanted to get done around the house. He was mowing and cleaning out the garage. The boys and I spent the evening playing outside. Brent finished mowing and drove the mower back up to his parents’ house. While he was gone, it started to rain. Normally I would have rushed the boys in the house to keep them from getting wet. That night, however, we decided to play in the rain.
Brent came home and joined in the fun.
It was probably about 8:00, so I headed in to make supper. We ate, played in the house and headed off to bed. Sounds pretty normal, right? That was the end to our normal day.

I woke up to Brent jumping out of bed and yelling, “Kelli, get the boys and get downstairs!”
