The Dust Cloud
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I was awoken to a very loud growling sound in my belly and I had just got fired from My job a day before, I was worried about feeding Allison because I had no money for food. Logan has no money either because he was a farmer but his crop field was taken over. I had always got up early to go out and pick some strawberries, but today I had slept in. When I was done picking a bowl of strawberries to feed Allison, my husband Logan and myself. Also always before I feed them to my daughter I would dip them into a bucket of water to rinse them off. Allison had always thought they were delicious. Later that day we went down to the stream about 30 minutes

Logan started to tear up a little, I think from the same reason that I was. Allison soon fell asleep when we were driving. Logan was driving. I almost fell asleep to but I didn’t. Around midnight we stopped at a hotel to sleep. I carried Allison into the room and took her special blanket and put her down in a small bed for her to sleep in, she never woke up when I was carrying her. Logan and I soon fell asleep to.
We woke up early the next morning and got in the car and kept going we had about four more hours to go. At last we got there the house was very dusty because of sitting there so long without anybody living there but despite the dusty mess it was beautiful. The outside was dark brown and tan trim. The inside was also beautiful we had ordered for carpet to come in a few weeks before we moved and we ordered for brown hardwood floor to be put into. After we got Allison’s bed inside, her clothes, and her toys we put the bed together in her room. Then we took our bed inside and set it up in our room.
Allison was messing around in her room while Logan and I dusted off the trim and floor and then we cleaned up the bathroom.

Later that day we got in the car and drove off to the store. At the store we bought a vacuum to so we can clean the floors. When we arrived home Allison immediately took the small vacuum we bought for her and went inside and ripped the packaging and took it out.
“Allison wait we have to make sure it works first!” I yelled from the outside porch “Stop wait for me Allison!”
She waited then for me. About 3 minutes later I walked in with the normal vacuum. I carefully opened the box. (After she practically destroyed it). Allison wanted to use her mini vacuum so I let her. She ran into her room and plugged in her vacuum then started to use it. I was vacuuming the rest of the house. Later she came running out of her room and screaming and pointing to her room.
I said “What's up sweetheart.” and she told me that there was a huge spider in her room.
“Oh it’s ok mommy will get rid of it.” I told
