Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that something else is more important than fear.
Last night we were asked to reflect on what it is that we have seen during our time that pierces our hearts. It was a beautiful sharing of the struggles, the people, the land and the resources.
Today we once again had rain. Fortunately it was spotty around the county, so all but one of our work crews continued their tasks.
Work was continued on the ramp up in Cyclone. Volunteers also finished up at the house on Bud Mountain. We also worked up at Foxy Lady's house fixing a bathroom floor and a porch roof.
Today was also the last day of tutoring for the summer. Mary and Kristina, who headed up the tutoring program this year, did a wonderful job. It was wonderful to watch as the kids grew more and more comfortable. They seemed to have really improved in their math and reading.
The volunteers who tutored were going to go outside and paint the dugouts but with the rain they had to hold off. Instead they started to help pack up and clean the school. We got a wonderful jump start on closing up the school.
In the morning we also brought the newly made beds down to the house and set them up. They really are going to be a wonderful addition.
Tonight for dinner we are being treated to a wonderful Italian meal. Yummo!
