Here is our little "Flood Club". Brayden, Adelyn and Sophie made it up. Brayden is the President, Adelyn is the Vice President, Sophie is the Secretary. We have already held several "club" meeting trying to figure out how we can fix the play room... (you like our cereal supply, Yea I do coupons and this is our stash in the crawl space...they were up on stuff so they didn't get wet, but we brought them up anyways.) What big helpers we have!!! Thanks kiddos!
Sad Story....it would be bad enough if this just happened to us....but it didn't...Our whole neighborhood is flooded...there are at least 15 families that got flooded.....and I'm sure there are more that we don't know about yet. I've never been in a disaster, but this is the nearest we've come. It was amazing to see our neighborhood and ward pull together....We have had tons of people run over to help, call on the phone. Thank you to everyone who came to help, Kevin, Brandon, Peter, Carl, Nick, you guys are amazing!!! I know it sounds dumb, but after we found out we were flooding I was feeling panicked and urgent to get it all done, then Brayden suggested that we say a prayer, we prayed as a family and then went back to work. I was thinking and praying in my heart and I just kept feeling like we need help. Moments later the phone rang and it was Kevin Cook calling to see if we were flooded, and to say he was on his way over and see if Lona Marie could watch the kids... I started balling after I got off the phone...In the midst of trials Heavenly Father still wraps his arms around you!! For that I'm eternally grateful!!
We are pumping out water, but we still have 2 inches on both sides now....tomorrow we will probably have to have the professional cleaners come and help so we don't get any mold...Ahhhhh Then we need to figure out what to do so that this won't ever happen again...I wish I could say that this was almost over...but I'm afraid we are far from being done.... it could be worse...at least it's just rain water instead of a busted sewer line.........yes it could be worse!!!
