Here are some of the things we have been doing since arriving at UMOM.
UMOM clothes closet. The racks are so full it's hard to get a good look at clothes.
UMOM clothes closet. These shelves are hard to keep full as soon as you fill them up someone comes in and takes everything! I spend several days here folding sorting and restocking.
Master bedroom long term apartment. There is not carpet on the floor this is painted cement. In the past there has been bed bugs and so the carpet went out. The gals and myself cleaned (really cleaned!) 2 apartments while I was here. You can't believe how bad the refrigerators and ovens get! I met a woman with 7 kids living in one of these apartments. You can put another double bed and possible a crib in this room.
Kids room long term apartment. Very small room. It used to be a bathroom. No closets or dressers to house clothes. I think they use boxes and put them under the beds.
Living room, kitchen, dinning room in long term apartment. The kitchen table only holds 4 at a time. It does not get bigger. So if you have a big family you have to eat in shifts, or sit on the floor.
Vegetable boxes that Mark helped to build before Christmas. There are 12 boxes. Mark and the guys are now hooking up electricity and irrigation the boxes for those really hot summer days.
Quartzcite is a small town that booms up to a million people in January when they have the rock show. People just pull up there camper any place in the desert and stay the night. Clear in the background are hundreds of rv's.
Spinners Cafe. UMOM is in hopes of getting this up and running. To help the families to waitress, hostess and cook. The gal in the picture is Cathy, one of the hard working NOMADS.
Yellow water table almost finished.
Hope you enjoyed some pictures. Hopefully it makes you thankful for what you have or don't have (like 7 kids!)
