Today was an amazing day. Max, Randy and David left for work at 5:30 this morning. We forgot to mention earlier that David and Cecelia, friends of Randy and Debra from North Augusta, have joined us at the Constructors project this year. They also have a motorhome and arrived Saturday afternoon and are parked right next to us. We are really enjoying getting to know them. So, the guys can go to work together early and the girls can ride together and go to the job site later in the morning. The weathermen predicted 70% chance of storms today but they were WRONG!! It did start raining on the girls at the campground at 6:03 but not the guys on the mountain in Rosalie. To be honest they did get wet about 8:30 and they did stop work for a short time but there were NO storms today. The temperature was lower than it was Saturday and the guys accomplished an amazing amount of work. All the exterior walls of the new building are now up and a few of the interior walls are up. It was truly wonderful to see the transformation. There were about 25-30 people working on the job site and then of course another 25 or more working to prepare the three meals for the day and they were 3 good meals. Its so much fun to see everyone working together – the younger ones being mentored by the older guys and gals. Even the children get in on the mission by serving the building crew Popsicles and snow cones. Anne and Debra and Cecelia’s team of 7, prepared dinner tonight. It was a good meal of ham, sweet potatoes, marinated salad, green salad, squash casserole, English peas, cantaloupe, watermelon, dessert of coconut cake and other cakes, rolls. The folks that had been working on the job site were really hungry so there were not many leftovers to put away at the end of the day. We are now all back to the RVs and really tired but know that it was a really great day! We will start it all over again at 4:30 in the morning.
