Mud anyone?

Last night for mutual we played mud volleyball with the young men. It was so much fun. I was a little nervous about diving for the ball but decided that I could not be shown up by the young women in my group.

I would definitely do this again. Maybe next year for the fourth of July I'll get a team together to play in the annual mud volleyball contest!

High Water

On the fourth of July we woke up to a 5 foot section of our bank taken out by the high run-off this year. It was pretty crazy and lots of people came to see it. On Tuesday it was alot worse. We were afraid people were going to drive to our house and fall into the creek so we put up a sign to drive on the other side of the garage.

The water was relentless and just kept undercutting the road then the top would fall in because there was nothing there to hold the ground up. We contacted the County road and bridge. They came and dumped some concrete into the river using a backhoe to hold it in place so the water wouldn't just wash it away. So this is now what our place looks like.

We have to wait until the creek dries up so we can fix the road. Hopefully it does dry up this year. I haven't seen a year when it does though so that is a good thing this year.

Chad finally got a hammock stand for the hammock that he bought in Guatemala. He is now relaxing every moment he can.

Buckie even seems to enjoy it.
