I don't anticipate we will be back. We're being told that once the flood waters are here, they won't be receding until late this year.
To distract Jaxson, I've told him we're going on an adventure after he inquired about all the packing and moving going on. He's asked me for 3 days straight now if we can leave for our adventure yet.
No Jaxson, but soon. We have to get all our stuff out of here first and put it somewhere safe.
I just remembered that Jaxson's 1 year Diaversary is on the 15th. His pump was approved by insurance and we were suppose to pick it up this week and start our training, but now just doesn't seem like a good time... I mean, with the Missouri River flooding and all, ya know?
My girls are sad to leave their childhood home. We've had a few moments where we've just cried together. We don't know where we're going to go yet, so that's a little scary too.
But I'm grateful.
Grateful for the angels who came to help and took over when I was just too overwhelmed to direct traffic and give instructions.
Grateful that we have time to prepare for impending doom and gather precious family photos and mementos that may otherwise be lost forever.
Grateful for the good in people that disaster brings out.
I know at some point I will have to unplug my computer, so I don't know when I'll be back to update. I do have a smartphone, so if I can find a way to update with that I will.
Until then, I'm grateful for your thoughts, well wishes and prayers.
