Today our staff liaison, J., came out to the work site to help us navigate our site problems. It was wonderful to have an expert advise us on the order of operations and great to see that some things stumped even him. But J. reminded us to do the best we can with the materials we have and that it’s ok to let go of perfection and enjoy the work. By the end of the day we had completed moving the furniture back into the master bedroom, cut and installed the deck boards on the first 5x5 and were well on our way to having the next two post holes dug and 5x5 frame built. We were in a groove-letting go and letting God helped!
This evening we returned to the center, showered, dressed and picked up our family for the picnic at Logan State Park. The center staff of four puts together a delicious dinner of hot dogs, hamburgers and all the fixings for more than 70! Each of the groups invited their families and quite a few were present. Youth played ninja, volleyball and cards. Adults from every team had a chance to socialize with all of the families. Even the deer came! What a special night!!
