It's Thursday?!

Wow I can't believe it's already Thursday. Only one more day of work on our house and then Saturday we are heading back to Pennsylvania!! I'm not ready to leave all the awesome people we have met or the house that we won't be able to finish but ESPECIALLY am not ready to leave the warm weather. It has been such a great experience I'm absolutely in love with the gulf coast of Mississippi now. I understand why it's so important for people to return and rebuild.

Today some of us continued working on the framing of the house while myself and a couple of other girls worked on building the shed in the back of the house. We basically did it all ourselves with a little help from Spikes and the AmeriCorps worker Miles. There were a lot of laughs on site today especially when we hid Miles' toolbelt and he opened his mouth when Tiffany used the saw sending a shower of woodchips into his mouth. It wasn't worth the joke he later said as the rest of us were rolling around on the ground laughing.

It's hard knowing that tomorrow will be our last day and that we will have to say goodbye to David, Carol, Lee, Jean, Spikes, Mike and Miles. They have all been great to work with and have made the experience all the more fun and worthwhile. It's amazing but I really feel connected to all of them through this experience.

Well tonight we have some free time after dinner so a group of us are going to go to Sonic since a few in our group have never been there before. Later!
