While we were getting ready to head out the door to go to a small group party, Sari asked me a simple question: “Why do we have a house?”

Me: “To stay warm in the winter, cool in the summer, to prevent us from getting wet when it rains and cold/wet when it snows , and to protect our stuff.”

Sari: “No, Dad. We have a house to protect us from tornadoes. And from volcanoes.”

Me: “Oh, okay.”
