fire in the shop

saturday, a week and 1/2 ago, ben and i had a great morning and early afternoon together hanging out at home and watching movies. very rarely do i get him to sit still long enough to watch several movies, and be lazy. we were just finishing up prince caspian, and steve called on my cell phone. "where's ben?!" i could tell that something was wrong. ben got on the phone and then just ran out the door not telling me anything! i thought steve had fallen or something, since he has a very bad back. when ben ran out the door, sydney was right behind him, running all the way to the shop. i knew that if it was something bad, she didn't need to be in the middle of it. so i finally got on my boots and ran over there. apparently our shop had caught fire sometime around noon and we didn't know! only explanation for how the fire was put out is that God did it! inside was a truck, tractor, lawn mower, and of course all of the shop equipment and tools, files, computers, etc. it could have been horrible, but we were all just so thankful that it was put out, and that not too much damage was done. by the way, mom and steve had stopped by the shop to look up some paperwork, and smelled smoke. otherwise we wouldn't have known for a while. here are some pictures....
