Today was a whirlwind. A lot of progress has been made at The Juniper Tree. Whitney, Emily and Edwardo (the man giving the OK on the ladder who works for KidsAlive) built the forms for the roof of the workshop. So much so, that we’re going into a business named 2 Chicas y un Drill. Mark, Lane, Richardo y Arthur helped to complete the Super Board/Fiber Cement board in high altitudes.
A girl at The Juniper Tree has an English exam in September- so everyday, 2 of us sit down with her, to review English words and make flashcards. Today, Duncan and Tyler spent an hour with her in the morning. They felt like she is almost ready for another lesson. She seemed to be catching on very well. They really enjoyed their time with her-all smiles after leaving their tutor session.
Katie and Mallory spent all day working on shelves for the workshop, you’ll see them sitting on one of their completions, giving it a trial run. They perfected the table top saw. Katie has requested a table top saw for her birthday gift and a planer. She’s considering leaving her Law Practice to make handmade crosses, out of scrap wood, to sell at the Flea Market. 🙂 You’ll see one of the older boys, joining them in the fun!
Our after dinner entertainment was one of the Worlds Largest and Finest Car Collections. We walked down our street, turned left, beat on a door and then…lights came on. Richardo had a BALL- note the picture.
It was reallllly cool. Tyler, the Construction Czar/host missionary, took us on a mighty nice tour.
We’re excited that tomorrow is our evening with the kids. We’ll have s’mores, devotions, songs and a skit! More to tell tomorrow.
We love you all and appreciate your role in our lives.
