Hugs All Around

My day included lunch in the excellent company of Leslie Hanna, a.k.a. the Crooked Stamper. I so love having a stampy-bloggy person living in my town.

While we were at lunch, however, we learned that our high school was evacuated because of a bomb threat. My elder son attends the high school!

Our school officials and the police handled this threat with extreme caution and followed their preparedness plan for such events, evacuating students to other buildings and communicating the situation to concerned parents through our one-call system, Facebook, and the district's web page. I admire the calm and cautious way the district handled everything, and the way they kept parents informed about what was going on as it happened.

All was resolved without incident, so yay! But that pit in my stomach will take a while to fill in.

In the meantime, enjoy a big hug and wishes for a most excellent, bomb-threat-free weekend!

  1. Oh how scarey Susan. Yikes. So happy it is resolved and all are safe. Now your card, I love love how you used multi colors on this sentiment, it really packs a punch.

  2. Glad all is well & love the inking :)

  3. I can only imagine how frightened you were. Thanks goodness all is well. The large sentiment on your card looks great - love the ink colors.

  4. I love what you do with those Kaleidacolor ink pads!

    It was great seeing you again. I love our lunches! And yeah, that announcement was quite unsettling, but the schools did a fantastic job of handling it. I hear they got all the kids out of the building in under 5 minutes.

  5. Wow, glad everything is OK. Love the kaleidacolor!

  6. So glad your son is safe and the school was not harmed. Praying for you and this world we live in! Love your card, consider yourself hugged by an unknown friend! :)
    (If there can be such a thing!)

  7. I love the simplicity of this card. Glad everything was okay.
