This past weekend we were all up at the property trying to help out. (notice I said trying) Almost all of our school staff came in 2 days before, and they were all there to help as well. Let me introduce you to everyone... (I know the girls will love that these particular pictures are accompanying their introduction.) One day soon I'll put up some pics where you can actually see their faces.
Patti Sue recruited Bethany to help with the chairs....considering she's our new art teacher!
Omer & Mary Jane Troyer (Omer's our new Director of Education) came in on Saturday afternoon, and they joined the teachers and Patti Sue on Sunday to pain the classrooms. He took a bunch of pictures and made a slide-show. I have to say...I LOVE it when someone else makes an album, labels the pics...and then I just get to post them. :) He had some great pics of the building from several views, and I know a lot of people are anxiously waiting for those updates. Copy and paste the following link to see his pics:
**Take special note of the roof over the laundry area in the back! Dwight & Freddy were working so hard to finish that on Saturday...and they did! (at 7:00pm!) They had just secured the first 2 sheets of metal when this crazy storm blew through and ripped both sheets off. It was very discouraging, but Dwight was SO relieved and excited when they finished that night. Thank you, God! Each small success means a lot at this point.
