We were waking up slowly to another beautiful day in Haiti on Monday morning, when suddenly with a rumble the house started to shake and some of the children screamed... another tremor! We all relaxed pretty quick afterward, and went on with our day... Dad's came, and we headed to bed fairly late after welcoming them... We were in bed, when we felt a jolt and then it shook for real... The children must have been sound asleep 'cause they only stirred in their sleep, but I grabbed Weston out of his bed, and we kind of froze, not sure what to do whether it was going to be bad or just another semi-small one... Everything in my room was shaking and I wasn't sure if the bookcase was going to stay standing or not... Later we found out that it was a magnitude 4.4 and that the epicenter was only a tenth of a degree to the north and west of us... That's why it felt so strong to us... It made me pretty tense for a while, but after an hour or so I was able to relax and go to sleep... some of my neighbors ran and people screamed... It'll be a LONG time before we forget what it was like to go through that Jan 12, 2010 earthquake... Just a few minutes ago, I felt another small tremor...
