i am curious as to what everyone was doing when this all happened. i will never forget! i was in the middle of teaching the bible lesson for the day to my first grade class. i got a phone call from eli so stepped out into the hall to take it. he told me what had happened as i looked up and down the hall here came my kids parents with balloons and cupcakes. what a bitter sweet celebration. it is awesome when someone wants to celebrate your day, escpecially a bunch of loving first graders. but to celebrate in the midst of such horror and trajedy was hard. the rest of the day was spent with coloring and various useless activities. that evening eli and i found ourselves at red lobster trying to have a nice dinner to celebrate but every tv was focused on what had happened that morning. then the gas scare hit and wouldn't you know i honestly had to have gas to get home. so there i was siting for 2 hours just so i can make it home. not trying to stockpile just wanting to make it home.
so please share with me where you were and what you were doing.
