Tonight, Isaac went missing. He actually goes missing a lot and it's been something we're trying to correct. Usually he's at one of three friends' homes in the neighborhood. But tonight around 6 when we're eating we were starting to wonder when he was going to come waltzing in again. I realized it was a lot later in the evening than usual. When Jeremy got home, he went to all of his friends' homes (about 7 or 8 different homes) and to the park to find him but he wasn't anywhere. Our neighbor came over to help look for him. And me and the kids look through the whole house again to make sure he hadn't fallen asleep in one of the closets. Jeremy eventually called the cops and I called every member of the ward I could think of,over to help comb the neighborhood together. At around 8:15 we had two cops, and about 10 friends over and at around 8:30 Isaac came driving up to the house with a friend from school and the kids dad (who I've never in my life meet) Come to find out he's been over there for about three hours playing games and eating dinner with them. There was a pretty good size thunder, lighting, and rain storm the whole evening, so he didn't want to walk home. And I guess they didn't want to drive him home and Isaac is totally daft when it comes to learning our # so, there you have it. One very scary night for the logsdon family well everyone except for Isaac. It sounds like he had a great evening. I didn't know if I should love him or beat him to death. With two cops hanging around I opted to love and lecture. He will never leave this house again. Makayla, bless her sensitive little soul, can not handle stuff like that and Tre totally searched the area and park (in the rain, I might add) and Jackson was clueless, he was excited about the police being in our home. I'm a pretty calm and collective person (when it comes to the big stuff, and a total nut when it's the super small stuff), so I didn't start crying or getting excited until people started showing up to help.
Thank you to everyone who showed up to help.
