[As transcribed by Daddy on August 7th]
Here's a quick update on everything happening to our house, for those interested.
So, since the big flood happened during my birthday party, we had several contractors come through and measure the amount of moisture in the walls of the kitchen, bathroom, and my bedroom. Mommy pulled up my bedroom floor in the meantime.
The eaves troughs are being completely rebuilt around the roof of the house, and enormous trenches are being done around the perimeter of the house - from the front door around to the right side. That trench is about a story deep - and they're going to replace the clay with new, thick soil and rocks, not to mention weatherproofing.
