Is the heat bothering you?

Whew, last night was a doozy! Practice was terrible. The school is conserving on electricity I guess, so band practice was rough. The uniform room was horrible. It was smothering and made fittings seem like an eternity. We've got 26 new freshmen and I was only able to fit 15, ugh! I managed to make it till 8:15, then that was it. I had to quit or die. Thank goodness practice let out a little early last night. By the time I got home I was sick. Heat exhaustion is not fun friends. I took a cool shower and rid my stomach the sad way, then made it to the bed and woke up around noon. I will be bringing a fan on Thursday! Plus plenty of water! It's almost humorous because I'm the band nurse. It's usually the kids that fall out! Not me. But it was very hot.
News about Alora. My niece Aaryn has finally held her angel, and we are proud to say that little Alora had a poop! Now that is good news, because that means her little intestines are beginning to work! Praise God! We've still got a long road ahead of us, but she is coming along. Hurray for Alora!
I must stitch tonight! So I'm off to do just that!

I'm thankful for beginning to hear God's word again in my heart!

When I got into my car at noon today, my thermometer on my car said it was 114! Glad to hear the great news about Baby Alora!

Heat? What heat? We've have a very cool, damp summer so far here. I just remarked to my GH the other day that it's the middle of July and we have not turned the air conditioning on once this season. Make sure you bring plenty of water to the next band practice. You don't want those teenagers to see you fallin down, do you? You'll never hear the end of it! LOL! That is great news about Alora. I hope she continues to make great progress and go home to her parents soon.

I loved your "heat" story but a big smile spread across my face hearing about Alora. See, prayer DOES work! I have had her in my prayers since reading your blog knowing this little girl will get there...it will just be a little slow. I will continue to pray and hold wonderful thoughts for her and all of you! Faye

Alora remains in our prayers. And you are a brave band mom!
