So sad to see this devastation...God bless all of you in OK.
We pray for the emergency workers and that there are many survivors to come out of this nightmare!
Hang in there Ryan!

Just wait, the perfect name will come up!
Exactly!

I was worried about you and your family, I am glad you are all safe. I have watched the Weather channel since your last post, I can't help but feel bad for all the people in your town. They are all in my thoughts.

Thanks for asking~
Glad she's keeping a good eye on you!!
Wives are good at that
Take good care of yourself, and good luck with the PT!

I was at JP's baseball game, but I had to leave because LC was not behaving. My wife is watching JP play now. The young one is going to be such a headache to the teachers when he goes to kindergarten next year. He is so stubborn, and he tries to push everyone's buttons until he gets a reaction. We thought this was a phase, but he hasn't grown out of it yet, once again, I now know why some animals eat their young.

I finally turned down the 42" LED TV, the Samsung surround sound blue-ray system, and all the other cool gadgets and settled on a Canon DSLR camera with a wireless photo printer.

It's very cool...but I'm not sure how to work it. Back to school!
Congratulations, Brad!
