The morning started like every other one this week with plenty of sunshine. After breakfast we headed to work at Westside Baby. Westside Baby is an organizations that provides all things baby related to the community. It is quite an impressive organization. Our task for the day was to dismantle car seats that could not be distributed again, that the different parts could be recycled and not fill up the landfill. Each car seat offered its own unique challenge to take apart. The mountain of plastic by the end of the day was reminiscent of Mt. Rainer!
After we left Westside Baby we made a stop at the Ballard Locks. Our arrival coincided perfectly with a load of boats heading through, so we got to see the whole process of how the locks work. Unfortunately there were no fish in the fish ladder underneath the locks. After the tour of the locks, we found a nice sunny spot in the garden and had our closing prayer service, reflecting on the experiences of the week.
We finished up the week up in Edmonds for the Seattle "Live with Passion" Potluck and Pickle Ball. (There will be more about this and pictures on the LWP Blog in the days to come.) It was a fun evening bringing together the PVs and there Seattle area Supporters.
We could not be happier with how the week went. Thank you to every agency that we worked with, Our Lady of Guadalupe Church, and most importantly to the PVs who took the leap of faith and joined us for the week. We will be posting the volunteer's reflections from the week in the days to come.
