Out of the Mouths of Babes

The grandkids are always saying something that makes you wonder just where did that come from and makes you realize their perspective of this crazy world they live in.

With the plane crash on Friday, the whole town was a buzz with the news and total disbelief of what just happened. I personally got weepy when I sat on the porch at Safeway and watched fire engines from three neighboring communities come to our rescue. How blessed we are that in times of trial, it doesn't matter who you are or what you need, it is taken care of.

On Saturday night I was waiting for the news to come on and Kamryn was just about ready to wind down and go to sleep when the anchor man gave the little blurb of "up date on the plane crash in Eagar" news starting at 10:00. Kamryn looks up, sees the pictures, listens to his comments, looks at me and says, "just how did he know all of that?" She lives across the street from the auditorium so she knew the pictures, she heard about the crash and on Saturday we still couldn't get past their driveway to see the damage, but she was well aware of what was happening. I think I realized that she didn't quite understand how tv works, that news could be about here, too. Maybe she thought the guy in the tv lived there or who knows what she thought, but her comments tickled me and made me laugh.

On Sunday Trentin was saying "high school", trying to tell me about the school by his house. Big news for little guys.

My heart goes out to the families of the family that died in the crash and I am so grateful that as bad as it is, I realize how much worse it could have been. Makes us all think. Hoping all is well.
