September 19, 2006

P>Hey family and friends. We are so sorry that we have not posted for the last couple of weeks. We have been really busy and had a pretty rough time last week. But we are going to be posting new pictures within the week so don't give up on us. We are so grateful for all of you and we love all of you. Molly is still adorable as you will see soon. We miss all of you and would love you to visit any time, our door is always open.

Just a little story to keep you entertained until next time....

Sunday morning at 3:30 a.m. there was a knock on our door. Jake got up and answered it and there was a young guy there in tears, claiming he had been mugged and didn't know what to do so he came to the first door he saw. Jake asked if he could take him home or to his truck and he said yeah. When Jake came in to get his phone I got upset with him and told him he was not going to take a complete stranger to an unknown destination. So Jake called 911 and told them the situation and they told him not to take him anywhere and they would send a car over. So in the meantime, Jake invited the kid in and talked to him and tried to get him calmed down. Turns out he was a sophomore, so 18 or 19, had been drinking a little and was walking from a friends to his truck ( which if where he said it was, is no where near our house) and took a wrong turn ( obviously a very wrong one). He said when he was out on  the road by our house 3 guys jumped him, beat him up a bit and stole his watch, cell phone and wallet. Jake was good at getting him to talk and it was so sad to hear him crying and know that he was really upset. But he was ligit, and it was a pretty scary thing. The cops did come and he graciously thanked Jake and was trully greatful for his kindness. Good thing Jake and I equal out eachother, him being incredilbly good hearted and willing to help anyone, me being very cautious and careful around everyone. So we officially had our first really crazy experience here, and hope it is the end of our night time interuptions!
