In other news we met up with our homeschool group at the local bowling alley for a morning of bowling fun.  A strong storm blew in and two of our families had a close encounter with the awesome force of electricity when the front doorway of the building was struck with lightning literally feet from where they were standing.  The lightning traveled through the door frame and down into the foundation causing the floor tiles near the door to burst into bits or melt!  Fortunately no one was hurt and we rejoice in God's protection of these moms and their children!


Join us next week for the completion of Jamestown and visiting with The Pilgrims!
