Several months ago on one of their afternoons together the boys made these marshmallow guns. They actually work really well and we have had a lot of fun with them. Marshmallows are very cheap here. you can get a big bag of little ones for $1. Yesterday they decided to try using them in a war with Star Wars figures. It was a bit of a laugh.

Homes were last on this list to receive power. The Ryder's Cup was due to begin the next day in Louisville so all the hotels and hospitals etc had to be dealt with first.
Our wonderful neighbours shared their grill with us and their gas stove top. We were also blessed to still have our gas hot water and we were able to eat at the seminary. We were without power for 7 days and lost a lot of food, but with hot water and food at the seminary we were fine. The nights just seemed a little long.
These are photos of our street on the day of the hurricane.

This is Rachel finishing. Sorry this post is all back to front. You may want to turn the sound down, there is a lot of yelling.
Rachel has been able to join the Dorothy Sayers Cross Country team. They train twice a week after school and run a meet every week, mainly on Saturdays. This was Rachel's first race. It is all a little serious here. There were 35 schools at this meet with the police helping with parking etc and each school had their own tent! Rachel finished 64th out of 251 middle school girls which includes 11-13 year olds. She did the 3km race in 12 mins 47 seconds. We thought she did really well.
This is the start.

One of the last things that we did was popped into Churchill Downs where the Kentucky Derby is run. It is a very famous race (even the Queen attended last year) and Churchill Downs is right here in Louisville. There happened to be races on so we went in to have a look. It was quite an experience. People were pretty excited about the race so it was a good atmosphere. We must go again sometime.
