What a month it has been. On July 10th we were scheduled to close on our first home.
We were super excited. Well, life doesn't always go the way we choose. On the July 7th Brad went to the house to do a final walk through. We mostly wanted to see what things we needed to do to prepare for moving in the next weekend. When Brad walked in the door he saw something we would never have believed. Our to be house had flooded. Not just a little bit of water on the floor in the basement, but water almost throughout the entire home. I could explain what it looked like, but we will let the pictures do the talking.
This is the ceiling directly below the refridgerator where the flooding began.
THE SKY IS FALLING
A HAUNTED HOUSE? NO, JUST PEELING PAINT
In the midst of this decision making progress we found out we could not stay in our apartment past the 31st as we had already turned in our 30 day notice and they had rented it out to another family. We found ourselves with no place to go and no idea what to do on a new home.
We are currently staying at my sisters home with our four kids. You add them to her five kids and we have a very full house. Last week we went under contract on a new home in Lehi. Let's pray that there are no floods this time.

Rebecca Dianne Bell was born on Wednesday, June 27th at 9:16 pm. She weighed 7 lbs. 7 oz. and was 19 inches. She was induced 2 weeks early from her due date (July 10th) due to the fact that her mother cannot have a normal pregnancy. Tamara was suffering from Kidney stones and infection since about Sunday and on Wednesday the specialist (for the kidney issues) asked her OB to induce her.
Tamara went into the hospital at 3:30pm. She was very slowly progressing. Averaging about one centimeter per hour. Until 8:15 where she measured at about 5 cm. At 8:55 she measured at 7 cm and was shaking. The nurse had left the room for no longer than 5 minutes when Tamara decided she wanted to push. Brad thought we would be bugging the nurse too much to have her come back so soon, but her sister Allison trumped the father and helped call the nurse. Sure enough, she was ready and the nurse rushed out and called the Dr. and finalize the preparations. Unfortunately most of the remainder of the time was waiting for the Dr. to return (as he had just left because Tamara was only at a 5.)
The rest is history and all went well. Both mom and baby are now recovering well at home. We will post updates of her early weeks of life.
