Calm Before The Storm!

Ok, so all weekend I was so excited because we had NOTHING to do. We had nowhere to be (except church) and it was great! We have been SOOOOO busy with swim meets and Dan's races etc. that it felt so great to do nothing. We got up Saturday morning and in anticipation of Dan coming home made this huge breakfast and then sat out on the back patio and enjoyed the warn sun and wind.
The girls were so happy to get to play with their toys which you guessed it included dirt and mud.
We thought is would be nice to invite Dans mom down from Lake Arrowhead for the weekend to hang out with the girls; little did we know what the week would hold for her and thousands of other families. It's funny becuase I kept thinking,"ahhh, this weekend is to calm, to mellow, to delightful. Surely something is coming." I swear I am a "glass is half full" type of person but this weekend I just had this feeling.
So around 6am Monday morning I get a call from my mother in law that she needs to come move in & my husband moved out! Ugh!! I want my cozy, sleep in, make pancakes, watch my girls play in the sun weekend back. Whaaa! Seriously though, I am praying for all you firefighters and wives who hold the fort down. Be strong! And to those of you who may have lost your homes or know someone who did? God is faithful and we will get through this. We're Californians, we're tough!

Hey there...praying for you and your family. Mine isn't actually fighting the fires...just manning the stations while the other boys are out. It is so hard on the young kids, as they JUST DONT GET why Daddy isn't coming home. Hope you are doing well....
