Monday 9/5 2:34pm "Keep sending those prayers our way! The true beauty of Bastrop is beyond the beautiful is in the heart and spirit of the people here- Our friends, our neighbors, our community. We sure do love this town we call home."

8:21pm "Nothing like a toddler to keep you grounded in the moment...thank you, Creator for our family."

Tuesday 9/6 9:12am "On our way to see if we can get back to our home...wish us luck!"

10:39am "Can't get thru still...not sure which is worse...not knowing or knowing."

Wednesday 9/7 9:56am "Thankful for a comforting stay at friends in Austin...they have a little boy too and Parker is having fun with different toys to play with..."

Thursday 9/8 12:32pm "‎28 pg partial list of destroyed structures released today...our subdivision not yet listed...we still have no idea on status. Finding gratitude that not knowing this long has given us time to think of all scenarios and find the silver lining of whatever may come..."

12:49am "So blessed to have such great friends...looks like we will be staying in Austin for the at least a couple weeks. How awesome is it that our long time buddy has a garage apt that he literally just finished out at his vacation rental off Congress. It is perfect, furnished, full kitchen, cable tv, and our own space that works great for Parker. In this moment we are good...."

Saturday 9/10 4:18am "Got a text today from our friend, "does your house have an old bicycle by the gate?"..."yes" I replied...finally- news on our home... we immediately called her back. She had given our address to her coworker whose husband is (I think) a State Trooper- he has been working out in Bastrop and was kind enough to drive by to give us some sort of news----sadly, it is a total loss. No worries though, we will be ok...blessings surround us and we find gratitude..."

4:19am "We now ask for divine guidance to lead us into the next phase of this journey. Thank you, for your love and prayers- we are truly appreciative of our network of support."
