Monday, Monday

It was humid, hot and stormy today. Luckily the rain held off until after we finished work for the day but when it rained, it poured. Big time. And there was thunder and lightening, which impressed these California people. It only cooled off for a few minutes but still, nice to see the rain.

We've accomplished a lot today. We're almost done with our projects at one house, yippee!! There is another house to take it's place, which is so great. Floors have been finished in one house and floors will start going in another tomorrow. Walls, doors, trim and exterior of homes have all been painted. Toilets will be installed at another place and a stove and refrigerator have been installed at the last house. It's so great to see things happening. We're all a little bummed that there are only two days left.

Here's a few things that made today funny. You'll have to ask us when we get home for explanations.
  • Bill's re-enactment of his car's reaction to lightening.
  • Kanda's "stomping" on Zach's head.
  • The gigantic grasshopper.
  • Gail's sweat sheet rock (yuck)
  • Zach losing his earphones in a gallon of paint.
  • Brittany coming out of the water closet
  • Just working with Norm.

Sorry, no new pictures tonight, our internet minutes are about to run out. But we do ask for these prayers:

For strength to finish out the week, help with frustration, to finish the most needed work and energy in the midst of heat and humidity.

We are also thinking of and praying for all the people in South Lake Tahoe who have lost their homes in the fire. Please pray as well. It's kind of personal for me, Lil' Bro lives there and The Dad is there right now too.

Thanks for your comments! It is so nice to hear from our family and friends. Keep them coming!
