"What I must do, is all that concerns me, not what the people think... It is easy in the world to live after the world's opinion; it is easy in solitude to live after our own; but the great man is he who in the midst of a crowd keeps with perfect sweetness the independence of solitude."
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Another buys day for the PVs! We were able to finish up our ramp project in Indian Creek, the work we were doing in Lilydale (beaver and all), and our Ramp in Corrine. We also continued work at the flooring site in Brenton and the site in Baileysville. Both those sites will be carrying over into next week, as will a new site we started in Baileysville as well. At this home, we began powerwashing the home and reinforce an existing porch. We will be coming back to finish the porch and powerwashing.
Today was also the second to last day of the camps. The kids seem to be having a lot of fun, and I think the volunteers are enjoying it as well.
Dinner tonight was a delicious casserole of chicken, garlic, cheese and noodles, with variations for the vegetarians and the youngins in the group. It was delicious and satisfying. We also had a fabulous dessert of a brownie, ice cream, m&m concoction that was scrumptious.
The evening's reflection focused on sharing something we received or learned while we are here and how we would like to take the new knowledge with us when we return home. The sharing was inspiring.
After reflection we were treated to an entertaining talent show put on by the PVs kids. The gifts and talents keep showing up in unexpected places...
