Visalia, California + Painesville, Ohio

Over the next few days, I will post pictures of our week with the Visalia team. (We had one join us from Painesville, OH, also.) In the meantime, I will be collecting pictures for the upcoming team!
When they send the wrong block, you make it work!

It's just like icing a cake...

But play nice!

There's always wire to bend.

We loved playing games after work! But you had to watch Alex...he was quiet but deadly!

The Second Floor is started...

As Summer 2009 begins, our first teams arrive. This summer's project is to put the second floor on the building that was started last year. It will be a meeting room that will hold about 50 people and an office on one end. The team from Visalia, California (and one from Ohio) got the walls up...

and now we are waiting for Pewaukee, Wisconsin to put on the roof! We are still finishing the bathrooms (the first floor) but most of that is tile work and hooking up toilets and sinks. This will be a fruitful summer in the work at Centennial Camp! May it all be used to the Glory of God!

Mexican Train/Chicken Foot

Learned some new games...and new rules to old games! This group must not be working hard enough; they stay up late each night and play games. And they are cutthroat! Pictures of their work coming soon!

I like my chairs!

When you are an intern, you get to do lots of things! I had bought the material for these chairs and had not had time to cover them. Krystal offered to do them and they look great! Thanks, Krystal!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

It may look like a new toy, but Johnny and Samuel had great fun using the new lawnmower and I loved having my grass cut! You can see how tall the grass was...and it was even worse in the back yard! Then it was the basketball court and the lower picnic area. You should have seen him zoom up the hill when the rain started!

This is representative of all last week! This week too...lots of cooking. We have a great group from California starting the second floor of the bathhouse building. Wisconsin, better hope they get all of the block laid! We have other plans for you! And FBC to follow! Can't wait!

Even though it is the rainy season, we have had almost a week of very little to no rain. It really was kind of nice, I worked in my garden several days. But today we returned from the capital to a torrential downpour. But Krystal was happy...she finally got to wear the rain boots she brought!
