Time Out From Daily Life - We're in Orange County For Now

Hi, there!

I have so much to write about regarding the end of baseball, Jack's First Communion and more, but for now, we're out of San Diego County and in Orange County. Fires spread like crazy today, May 14th, and our neighborhood was quite scary. We were not officially evacuated, but we felt safer leaving.

So, we're in Anaheim for a few days, enjoying Blake's nice hotel and the pool and Disneyland until things calm down in Oceanside.

Here is what the news looked like today:


We could see the San Marcos fire from our backyard, even though it was 10 miles away. Flames were huge and that seems to be the most concerning in the immediate area.

From other directions, we could see three other fires. The air was thick and heavy and due to poor conditions and heat, schools were cancelled. 

We're staying in touch with neighbors and will return as needed, but will stay busy here for now.

Pray for San Diego County and the amazing firefighters who are protecting the life we love down there.
