And the last week in the school begins.... this week we have the largest group of the summer with 34 volunteers, which is great as we try and finish up as much work as we can this week before we move to the house.
On Saturday we only said goodbye to three volunteers, but over the weekend we welcomed 18. With a full house and a lot more names to learn, we were once again led in community building activities by our two summer longs. Once again, a good time was had by all. Since this was the last Sunday they will be with us, we just wanted to say what a wonderful job they did all summer long as our community liaisons. They did a great job bring each community together.
Shortly after community activities finished it started pouring down rain. It was raining so hard that water kept coming up the kitchen floor drain and flooding the kitchen. We were armed with mops to tackle it each time it came up, but it was quite a battle. Eventually we ended up "plugging" the hole with one of our cups and at the same time the rain subsided, we are not sure which acting stopped the water, but as long as it stopped. After that excitement we went outside to check the creek and the water was high and moving very fast from all the rain.
For the evening meal, we had our usual Sunday cook out meal. The excitement this time was that the Hanover Fire Department came as someone had called in thinking the school is on fire. Soon after the fire department called, the principal called. It is good to know that people are looking out for us : )
We closed the evening with the commissioning service and jobsites for Monday. We are looking forward to another great week!
