More Fun on the Trampoline

We spent a lot of time outside during this week, and I did a lot of laundry by hand!!! On Sabbath, Aug. 11, our water pump burned up. While Colby tried to fix that pump, then replaced it with a different one we had, then pulled up the well by hand and replaced the point with a new point, then pounded the well back in the ground by hand, and still ended up having to buy a new pump... We went without running water for 10 days. I washed 5 loads of laundry by hand, heated water on the stove for baths, and flushed the toilet with buckets of water from a large grain bin full of water that Colby set up for me outside. The Friday following the initial loss of water came and for some reason the power went out as well for several hours. I felt like a pioneer woman.Thankfully I have a gas cooking stove! We had baths of water heated on the stove by candelight that night! It's good for you to realize all that you take for granted now and then! Anyway, these are just a couple more pictures of the kids playing on the trampoline that week. Aug. 17, 2007
