Still Hanging Indoors

The fires are still blazing in the counties surrounding us. Air quality is still horrible and the heat, my goodness! It's almost November and 100 degrees outside. That is unheard of! I was kind of worried sending Nick to school and him being outside at recess inhaling all of the ash in the air. But we received an e-mail from the school district stating that they were doing everything possible to keep the children safe and indoors. So that put my mind at ease. Nick says that they eat snack & lunch in class and do various games and activities during recess time, in class as well. The only time they have to go outdoors is when they have to use the restroom. Obviously, they are trying to make the best of a terrible situation.
My heart goes out to all the families that have had to evacuate their homes due to fires closing in on them and to those who've lost their homes. It's tragic! My thoughts and prayers go out to all of the families...
God Bless!
