Morgan's Katrina/Rita Weekend

Hey guys long time no post!!! Well there is no new news from California. I guess they were serious about having less time to write. To tell you the truth I do not expect any letters to be written by him this week anyway. It is probably the most physically demanding week of his life. I can not wait to hear about it. As soon as I know anything you will know also.

This past weekend Morgan went with her church group down to Vidor Texas to assist those affected by the hurricane, Katrina/Rita. We bought her some tools and she left Friday afternoon with a smile on her face. She went with Jeremy,Paula's son, and his wife, Marcie. While they were down there they all slept in a church each night. The first night they did not get there until 1 am. Needless to say she was ready for some sleep. The next couple of days they worked from 7:30 am till after dark each day. When she got home she was telling me about her new appreciation of construction work. She has also grown a fond attachment to her hammer. She says that she really has an appreciation of having a roof over her head like never before. I think she had fun although I know she was really spent by the time she got home. She slept the entire next day after getting home Monday night around 9:30 pm. I was very proud of her!!!!!! My little missionary... I keep telling her that she might look into the Peace Corps. My only fear is I am sure they are for the most part the biggest Liberals around and I am not sure how her conservative up bringing will fit in. Oh well!!! I guess we will just have to wait and see. Morgan says, "Why hug trees when you can hug people!!!" My only hope she is not talking about the local BOYS.

Love you all and Happy Wednesday!!!!
