It was a good day. We are healthy and happy and enjoying getting to know the great team of people that work with Rick and Lisa. We are making new friends and feeling grateful for the opportunity to be here to help get this beautiful property ready for the children that will call it "home" in the near future. It's going to be a great week.
As usual, I've tried to include lots of pics to help share our journey.

|Taylor and Anna mixing the concrete (hard work!!)|
|Tommy, Lauren and Arlene (whitewashing the wall to prep it for painting)|

|The side wall on the property. Almost done this part - a few more sections to fill and parge...then paint.|
|Bjorn did soccer drills at a local school...and the boys asked for his autograph on their soccer balls.|
