So, this is another mess he is tackling calmly, this time with lots of helpers. First we had kids bring down every towel in the house to soak up water while Dad drove to get the wet vac from a job sight. All the seven kids who can do so brought down towels and covered the floor. Then today after Tennis the kids set the oven timer and took 30 minute shifts to wet vac the carpet. They worked so hard! James, John, Annie, Mickey and Nate did 2 half hour shifts and I dumped four huge tubs of water. Then tonight Sheff is cutting and ripping up all the carpet. I told the kids how blessed they are to have example of a hardworking Dad, and how I expect them all to jump in and help each other as adults. Amazing to have so many to help each other out over time as they grow up.
A fun bonus we found full tile under the carpet and pad, so weight lifting, rip-sticking and trikes will have a home from now on! There is still a huge amount of work to do but we are on it!
