After our General Conference Lesson earlier today about Spiritual Whirlwinds, my children have been all about getting prepared physically for storms as well.
They immediately went downstairs to set up a tornado safe-house in the basement. Equipped with blankets, books, and favorite stuff-animals, they moved on to assess their 72-Hour Kits.
We realized it had been 3 years since we updated the clothing in our 72-Hour kits. Scarlett made sure the clothes weren't useful to her anymore by modeling her size 24 Month sweatshirt! *Actually, I think we packed that for Autumn.
(If you want to see what we put in our kits, click here.)
I love the Tornado Rules that they made up:
We now have one more child than we had three years ago, but we've waited so long that the diapers I had packed for Autumn, now fit Honor! Score. Well, this is just a little reminder to go update your 72-hour kits. I need to update my clothing pack too!
