Bracing and Balancing

Hurricane season in North Carolina is never dull, but this one is shaping up to be a doozy!

Yesterday, the kids and I went to the store and picked up the requisite water, candles (unscented after last year's assault on the senses), non-perishables, and batteries. We are well-provisioned just in case.

It's a tough balancing act. Preparing but not panicking. It's especially tricky now that the kids are more aware. Issa is reading the news for her social studies class now, so we have had a lot of conversations about being aware versus freaking out.

Thankfully, Evan is around to keep us laughing. He looked at the spaghetti track map last night, and his first response was, "Wow. Someone should be fired for that one. That's about the least helpful thing I've ever seen."

Yep. Life is unpredictable, so we prepare for the worst and pray for the best.
