"The world is moved along, not only by the mighty shoves of its heroes, but also by the aggregate of tiny pushes of each honest worker." Helen Keller

Hot and humid seems to be the trend of the summer...Today we had the five home repair sites from yesterday carrying over as well as adding a new one. The ramp site and the porch roof site but were completed today, yay!!! A lot of progress was made at the flooring site. The big room has all of it's linoleum down and the back bedroom is ready for tomorrow. At the bathroom room site, we are ready for all the fixtures to be put in place, so that should be pretty close to being done by the end of the day. The drywalling site continues moving along well. This is a site that we won't be able to complete, but plan on doing as much as possible for the family before we leave for the summer.

The new site today was down in Brenton for an elderly lady who needed a small ramp to help her get out of her house as well as needing her whole house power-washed. When we stopped by the site in the evening to pick up some supplies, the house looked shiny and bright where the power-washing had been completed. The ramp frame was all built, just waiting for the deck boards, great progress was made.

Tonight for dinner we enjoyed a breakfast feast, pancakes, eggs, bacon and sausage. Yum, yum, yum. After reflection we had cupcakes as our dessert.

Reflection this evening focused on traits that we all as PV Volunteers share in common. We passed around a poster with a hand traced on it and everyone's names and were asked to add our trait to the poster and share with the group the word and why we chose that word.
