Party at the Partins!!

So here we are in Waco. We drove up here Wednesday and encountered NO traffic problems. My rule for all future hurricanes is LEAVE BEFORE THEY TELL YOU TO. My parents left their house in Houston this morning and have gone 14 miles in three hours. Please pray that they find a place to stay tonight. We are SO glad to be here -- to spend time with our friends but also to avoid possibly dying in the hurricane. Please pray for everybody on the coast because this one's not looking good.

We are staying with our friends Patrick and Carol. They have two girls, so our own two girls are having a great time. Chad has offered to watch all FOUR girls while Carol and I go to Starbucks, so I better run before he renegs on his offer.

Here is a little Partin/Nall trivia:

1) Carol, her daughter Emma, my daughter Jenna and I ALL have the middle name of "Carol."
2) I set Patrick and Carol up on their first date.
3) Patrick and Deana had a short-lived romance (?) in junior high.

    You are a wise woman! Right now it looks like the hurricane is moving away from the Katy side, to the Baytown side. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

    We could barely get out of our neigborhood this morning because of hurricane evacuations. We live about a mile from 1-10 and people were entering Katy (town) for gas. We have decided to ride it out for now unless the storm does a major shift back to the west.

    Glad you all are safe in Waco. I am at my mom's in New Braunfels, Skip is at Sarah and Easy's in College Station, and Matt and Kara are in Seattle, WA, having left on Wednesday afternoon for a conference Kara was scheduled to attend.

    Skip did not leave Baytown until yesterday morning to head to B/CS. It took him 18 hours to get there! He arraived around 3:30 a.m. today.

    Stay safe. We'll see you back in Baytown!
