As we ventured out this past week and around the local community it was sobering to see just how many homes were damaged. We were driving down Hwy 100 the other day and the kids were looking out their windows at every ones “stuff” ruined from the water and piled up along the side of the road waiting to be picked up. Lily started explaining to Luke- “And that’s the blood, and more from the blood, and that’s blood too….” I thought- What in the world is she talking about? And then it hit me, all this time we have been talking about the “flood” around them- which is not really a word they would recognize. So we had a little explaining to do- that it was a flood not blood.
