I have always wanted to help on something like this since we went to Louisiana to help rebuild homes after Katrina. On Sunday nights we watch America's Funniest Video and then Extreme Home Makeover. It's a great show with the purpose of changing a families life for the better.
When we first got there they didn't have much for us to do..but then we got into the action. This is probably going to be one of the longest post ever with all the pics...so be WARNED!! We hope to help frame the house today, but due to weather they didn't pour the concrete until later. No I didn't get to meet Ty today...maybe tomorrow...but I did get to meet one or two of the others...:)
This is De and I on the shuttle.
Me at the construction site
Funniest pic...that's Paulee in the black vest with orange sleeves...I wanted a pic with him...so while we were serving my new fun friend Andye did this..
But then...thanks to Dwayne...I got this!!
Our Football teams verse and all the boys names on it hanging on the gate there, Jaden loved that his name is on it!
These trailers are lined up in the neighborhood...yes...those neighbors are well take care of so don't worry!!
Matt was right by Paige while I was in serving...I did come out and see her but didn't get a pic with her...bummer
So it was a fun day! I actually loved all of it! We cleaned and served food...and just basically did any job they asked us to do. Got to see lots of people and met some really cool new ones. We are going back tomorrow for the Make a Wish kids time. I think it will be very special to see all those kids...mine are going also. I could totally see myself working on something like this on a regular basis. I pray that this family is so blessed by all of this. It was out of my box to go without Matt, but it was so good for me to do it even though I did talk him into coming because I needed a ride home. He is so good to me!
