We finally got some rain yesterday. It hadn't rained here for weeks and all of the crops were starting to look pretty sickly. We live in a HUGE farming/agricultural area with a lot of corn and soybean farms. My stomach would knot up when we would drive somewhere and see how bad the fields looked. I can only imagine what the farmers were thinking!

But, the Lord is faithful and answered the prayers for rain yesterday! Some areas got over an inch! Hopefully my flowers and yard will perk up a little too :)

I was also praying for rain for a different reason. Our house here is over 100 years old, so we don't have central air. Most of the time the house is cool despite that. I know those of you who live in Georgia couldn't imagine living in a house without air! I couldn't when we first moved here either, but I have been pleasantly surprised! Well, the last couple of days, the temps were in the 90s with 90-95% humidity. It was like living in a sauna upstairs. We have a small window air conditioner downstairs that kept that part of the house cool, but no such luck upstairs - yet!

You'll be pleased to know that we're taking a trip to Lowe's this weekend to buy a second air conditioner for upstairs :) So, when you come to visit, no worries - the house will be cool, even if the weather outside is hot and humid!

Hi Everyone,
I just read your latest blog and I have been trying to figure out how I am going to get an air conditioner in my suitcase when we fly up for a visit!!! Glad you got the rain for all the farmers and for the flower garden in your backyard. (We have had rain off and on all week and the yards are beginning to turn green again). Hope you have a good weekend. Dad and I plan to drive to S. Carolina for Chad's baseball tournament on Saturday. Give the kids a kiss for us and tell them we love them and think of them every day. Love you and Britney too! Nana
