The Great Flood

**Can't believe I published this without giving you an update on yesterday! Eric passed his test!! Thank you so much for all of your thoughts and prayers. :) **

The girls and I have been working on a little project that we hope to show you tomorrow! I didn't have it quite finished enough to take pictures of yesterday, so until tomorrow....

Can we talk about the monsoon we had yesterday??

There is nothing quite like a summer rain storm. I love em. I love when it gets dark in the house in the middle of the day. I love a good excuse to snuggle with a movie and light some candles - even when it's 90 degrees outside. :) It's cozy! But yesterday was just...a rain DUMP.

The kids couldn't resist going out on the back patio to take in the smell of the rain. And to reach out their hands and try to touch it....

I always look out of the back door when it starts raining, because inevitably there will be a giant stream running through our backyard. It kind of makes me laugh, even though it's not funny, because the city keeps "fixing" the problem, but yesterday was the WORST I have ever seen it. Those poor people that live on the street behind us. Their road gets completely flooded. (Which means at least one way to get to and from our house is closed off, too.) I know I've shown pictures before, but yesterday my jaw dropped.

You see the skinny stream flowing through the yards in those first pictures? I came back out 10 minutes later, and it had turned to this:

That is so ridiculous, haha.

There was a little girl out wading in it once the rain stopped. A free swimming pool. :)

The kids were just learning about Noah's Ark in Sunday School this week - or "Noah's Arctic" as Evelyn calls it. And how very timely that there was a flood right in our own back yard, haha. Didn't take long for the water to take over, that's for sure!

Speaking of all of that, did you guys see this article about the new oceans that have been found in the earth?? Check that out! Pretty cool stuff. Then flip your bible back to Genesis:

11 In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, on the seventeenth day of the second month—on that day all the springs of the great deep burst forth, and the floodgates of the heavens were opened. 12 And rain fell on the earth forty days and forty nights.

The underline was mine. Oh, science. Getting closer to the truth every day. :) Of course, this has been discussed among believers for years and years. It came as no surprise to Eric and I when we saw that article last week. Well, duh there's "great" bodies of water in the Earth, the bible said so thousands of years ago! Cracks me up. 

I love true science, by the way. Makes me smile how much it points right back to God. Don't try to tell science that, though, really makes it uncomfortable. :)

Haha. ANYWAY. 

We hope you have a great day today! Hopefully we can get out today without needing a canoe! Or an arctic. :)
