This is the Life Chase Leads

I mentioned in another post that Chase is working out at Camp K this summer. He has to live out there in a tent and he gets to come home around 10:00 am on Saturday until 11:00 am on Sunday. Family was invited out for an evening meal the first week. So I snapped these pics of the flag ceremony. They also do this in the morning to raise the flag. I should have gotten more pics but after dinner there was a threat of a storm so we didn't stick around long. Chase is working at the waterfront and teaching the swimming merit badge. This is his second week and he'll be finished July 20th.

Where is the ARK???

Most of Indiana was hit with major rain into our already saturated ground through Friday night. We all woke up to much rain and water everywhere on Saturday. Most people have not lived long enough to have seen floods like we just had this weekend. Brazil was "shut down", Clinton was declared a disaster area, Terre Haute not only had roads, yards, basements and houses flooded but they had some roads collapse. I70 near the Putnamville exit collapsed and now we have all the traffic in Brazil. You can check out the paper at or for pics etc. We met at the 9:00 am time frame with the other ward today and only had sacrament and then we had an emergency meeting discussing everyones needs. We have at least one family that has lost everything because water was up to the roof. They even lost their car and was evacuated by the fire department. This was a whole area that had homes completely flooded. Other families have water in their houses, especially basements. One had his driveway wash away and now can't get into his house which is about 1/2 mile off the street anyway. I have water in my basement and have started the process of eliminating it. Bloomington got hit hard also but all is well at Corey's. Muncie didn't get it quite so bad but they got it and again Coby and Lindsey are fine. Luckily Chase was home that night. For those that don't know....Chase is working out at the boyscout camp, Camp K and is living out there, in a tent, until July 20. The time home he gets is after 10:00 am on Sat until 11:00 on Sunday. (He'll be going to the other wards sacrament during this) Anyway last week was a staff work week and he got to come home on Friday night so he was tucked in during the storm. This isn't saying that he didn't spend several other nights/days throughout last week in storms, as I said the ground is saturated. He is doing waterfront.

Mr & Mrs Martin Meddles

I wish I had pics to share but since I sit here in Indiana and they spent the day in Florida getting hitched, the best I can do is offer warm wonderful wishes to the first of the Meddles Three to get married. Marty and Jen (since two Jenny's are too confusing) were married today with family present. I have met Jen and she is a great person. I think they will do great together. What I know now is that they are staying in Evansville for now where they both have jobs.

On a sad note....for those that don't know.....Larry's Dad passed away very early in the morning on Sat, the same day they were flying out to Florida. I am sure all their emotions are running high right now. His funeral won't be until Monday June 9 at Debaun Funeral Home. Please keep the family in your prayers.
