Another Earthquake and Sketchy Thursdays...

Yesterday a massive earthquake hit Christchurch.  This one was a 6.3, 5k deep (not very deep means extra hard shaking), and only 10k away from Christchurch.  Having moved to Dunedin, we felt this one but as a 3.3, which felt like a big truck rumbling by.  Our family is fine.  From what we can tell by facebook posts, our friends in Christchurch are fine.  There are a few we haven't heard from and of couse we are concerned.  If you are reading this and happen to be a person who prays, would you please offer up some prayers for the people of Christchurch?  I know they would be much appreciated.  The city will have a massive clean up and rescue mission ahead of them.  Many are without water, power, phones, and even homes.  Many people are still missing in the rubble.  My heart is breaking for the city of Christchurch.  I remember the feelings of helplessness we had after the earthquake we experienced.  I feel even more so now being far from Christchurch.  This is a link that is updating all the events surrounding the earthquake www.stuff.co.nz

Last week I was able to get my layout done for SketchyThursdays.  Aron loves to start fires but in a safe environment.  This particular day, he asked if he could use this pan for one.  He knew I would probably let him if he would stay safe while doing it.  So he had his bucket of water ready and was on the driveway.  Smart boy!  And with me right there....camera in hand....he was ready.  I think both he and I were suprised that he was able to get one going so quickly.  We've promised Aron that we would take him camping over night somewhere and that he would get to start the fire.  Of course that made him very happy and now he can't stop asking when we will go.  :)
