"Live simply so others may simply live." Elizabeth Ann Seton

Today the temperature broke a little. It was still warm and very humid, but we had some cloud cover for a lot of the day. Today we sent a group back up to work on the ramp and the stairs and then started two new sites. At one site we worked in a trailer that still had not had any work done since the flood so we cut out the damaged drywall, about 4 feet up, tore out the insulation and replaced both. Since we had a good size group we broke into two groups and were able to make progress in two rooms.

Another new site we worked on was painting inside a women's trailer and power-washing the outside. Her trailer is 40 years old, but looks immaculate on the inside.

Camps continued today and we are happy to report a 300% increase as we had three kids for both camps. Between the local kids and the PV kids (not to mention the big PV kids) it seems that everyone was having fun.

For dinner tonight we were treated to an Indian feast with chicken, curry and rice. It was delicious. For dessert we had cake and homemade ice cream to celebrate one of our summer longs birthdays, Happy Birthday!

Reflection tonight focused on opportunities. We were asked to reflect on an opportunity which may have seemed small to begin with, but really became life changing.
