It appears that life is never boring. For those of you who don't live around these parts, we were awakened this morning around 5:35 a.m. by an earthquake! It is my first earthquake! Well, my mom says there was one when I was a baby, but I don't remember it. Ben came running into our room as our bed was shaking. It was a very uneasy feeling. My first thoughts jumped to the fact that there must have been an explosion. I remember the Hollywood Candy Factory in Centralia catching on fire and exploding. The windows at my Aunt Beth and Uncle Wayne's house rattled and the house shook. That was the first thought that popped into my head. They say it was a 5.4 on the rector scale, and it started in Southern Illinois. I can promise you that life at school won't be normal today! We pray there is no aftershock! That would not be fun in a classroom! We thank God that it looks like no one was hurt by this!
