The newly married Philipses returned from their mini-honeymoon to some very eager neighbors: US! We've missed them and have been really excited to hear all about their first few days together as husband and wife. We celebrated our reunion with oatmeal raisin cookies and about thirty rounds of Dutch Blitz.

For as much as we've had beautiful, sunny weather the past few days, today we experienced a small taste of what middle America has been suffering lately; there's nothing quite so frightening as a sky that was as black and ominous as the one we saw today. My heart is aching for all those people who lost someone this week from the tornados, especially this family. I just can't imagine the grief that this mother must be experiencing..... Lord recover this little boy safe and sound. Comfort this family in their distress with the knowledge that their youngest is in your safe-keeping.
