What in the world just happened. At about 4:45 this morning Anna hears a huge crash and some tires squealing. I think I’m dreaming until she wakes me up. We look out our back window to find that someone has crashed through our fence and drove off. I call 911 and a few seconds later (yes I said seconds) there were two police cruisers outside. I was still on the phone while Anna talked to them. The fence can be replaced easily enough. Even though I just stained it! It's the two crate myrtles that they ran over. You can't replace those. At least they didn't hit the house and we weren't in the back yard at the time. The culprits did leave something behind though. It’s the plate off their Dodge Pickup truck… We’ll be at church in the morning.

The kids slept right through it. They've even slept through the fire alarm. Hannah didn't seem too phased. She looked out the window and said, "Hey I can see the cars go by!"<br />

Now we wait for the police/insurance stuff to go through.

Man, you guys are lucky they didn't hit the house. Your back yard isn't that big and your bedroom is right there! Did the kids wake up at all?

Holy Cow!!! That's something that could be on the news. It could also be on one of those "What a dumb criminal" shows-for leaving the tag. Praise God you guys are safe.
