As you all know from a previous post that one of the words that pretty much sums up a lot of my goals is
We have decided as a family that we would focus our FHE's around this motto. Whether it be better prepared physically, better prepared emotionally, better prepared mentally or better prepared spiritually .
So our first FHE was being prepared physically.
My fabulous and close friend Ana has always been a great example to me about being prepared. She has her 72 hour kits together and always has had an abundant food storage. I appreciate her example and motivating me to try a little harder. Thanks ONNA!!(heehee)
So we researched a little on good things to store. We took the kids shopping with us so they could be involved in the process, and then came home and put our 72 hour food/water kits together. It was a lot of fun. I think they learned a lot too. Next week, we will finish with our clothes and essentials in our backpack and talk more about why it is good to be prepared!
Here are some great websites to help you get started (if you are interested) and help explain the importance of being prepared. If you want to learn more or start a kit just click on them. I think it is important to modify some of these to meet your families needs!
And if any of you have any good ideas to share about how to be better prepared, or something you have done...let's us know in our comments.
