Aedan (4yrs) commemorates the loss of house and church with a drawing of bishops (below) in pitched battle. The "bad bishops" in purple with black hats on the right are destroying churches (those peak-like things with crosses on the top...one has already been destroyed on the far right--all that remains is the cross) while "good bishops" on the left try to stop them. The left side is full of things Aedan likes...clouds, balloons, watermellons...it looks like a "good bishop" is standing on a watermellon on the far left. Another "good bishop" is trying to stop a bad bishop on top of a church building in the center right of the drawing...very sad but pretty accurate drawing.
