Monday, March 11, 2013

The beginning of a new week usually means the beginning of a new project, and this week is no different. Five of the students, along with Dan, started the day by ripping off the old porch of a ladies house near Mullens in Pierpont. This was done in amazing quick fashion. By the time the last of the wood was delivered, they were ready to build, and build they did! By the end of the day all the framing was done for the porch and the ramp, as well as some of the deck boards. We were very impressed with the work that was done, and so was the neighbor. At the end of the day he came out to ask us about doing a job for him. He thought we were a local group of contractors! We think that speaks volumes about the work that was done. PVs everywhere should be proud!

The other group of students spent the day with the Bailyesville Head Start. They arrived in time to have breakfast with the kids, spent the day learning and playing, ate lunch, took a nap (ok maybe they didn't nap) and at the end of the day, rode with the kids on the buses as they were dropped off at their homes. As Head Start always is, it was a wonderful day spending one on one time with the local kids and getting a little insight into their lives.

We got very lucky with the weather as it was suppose to rain, but it held off to about 5 minutes before we arrived home at the end of the day. It has made up for lost time as it has been pouring ever since, but it is suppose to be sunny tomorrow, cool, but sunny.

Thanks for taking the time and reading about our day!
