"People take different roads seeking fulfillment and happiness. Just because they're not on your road doesn't mean they've gotten lost."  Dalai Lama

For reflection last night we reflected on being afraid and then shared a "new and good" from the day.  After reflection the whole group hung out at the tables and played games, a sort of informal tradition that has taken hold this week.

We hit a milestone up in Hanover today with finishing all the painting.  A lot of PVs have put a lot of time and in effort in first creating those walls and now there is a finished product.

The painting crew up the road in Jesse, was finally able to get some paint onto the house once if finally stopped raining mid-morning. The house looks great, like a brand new house.

Another crew headed out towards Welch to do some finishing work on roof that was put on a few years ago and has just begun to leak in a few places.  They got it sealed up in no time.

The two non-home repair sites for the day were Basketball Camp and tutoring.  Basketball Camp continues to go very well, picking up a few kids each day.  The kids are learning some wonderful skills from Coach "D" and his merry band of PVs.  After the morning camp session, some PVs headed back to the school for tutoring. We are very happy how dedicated our four kids have been all summer. They are there each and every day and we have really seen a marked improvement in their abilities.

Dinner tonight is breakfast casserole (again, from the PV Cookbook), fruit and blueberry muffins.  Yummy, yummy!
