What's this? a comic? On Wednesday? Blasphemy! Well consider it a little bonus. I don't really think of this as a comic. Our church intern Ryan was complaining that he never gets left anything in the church office; so I drew this up and shoved it in an envelope. I decided to post it because it makes me laugh. I didn't clean it up any though. Well, I retyped the words (poorly) because they didn't make it through the scan.

We had an interesting day yesterday. I woke up at 8:30 and started getting some bottles ready for the babies. As soon as the water boiled the fire alarm started going off. I decided just to move the whole operation to the balcony, because I've been told that's where you should wait in an apartment fire. I stepped out onto the balcony and looked across the lot (our building is V shaped)and saw that the apt. 2 floors up and on the other side of the building was ablaze. fairly furiously as well. Sarah and I made a quick call and said "well, it'll take a while for that to make its way over here" so we packed up our rabbits, cat and babies and headed for the car. (our unit is right next to the stairwell and exits into the parking lot by our car). once we were safely out we went and stayed at Sarah's Grandma's house for a few hours. Eli thought the whole thing was awesome, he kept smiling and laughing. My guess is that he thought he was watching the price is right (his favorite show). After all there were buzzers, lights, people totally freaking out. Caleb was less amused. He had this terrified little look on his face... it might have been gas. Anyway, no one was injured. Our apartment was untouched by the fire. Sarah took some pictures of the fire that I will post in a later blog, probably tomorrow. All in all it was a pretty average day for the Bakers.

That's all for me! New comic on Friday.
