Day 2: the work begins
Written by Hannah and Andrew
The start of our moving and wonderful journey.
With the confirmation class exhausted from a day of travel and worship, we were looking forward to finally meeting our neighbors and starting the project that we had travelled so long to complete. As we entered the trailer park where we would be spending our day, we felt happy to help those who needed our help. Hannah and Andrew, the star students, started digging fantastic holes that would later support the beams of the ramp. I wish I could dig holes like Andrew and HannahCharlotte thought from the sidelines as the sun beamed down on her face.
After a solid day of work, Zack began to show signs of intensive labor. He and Cameron were cutting wood all morning and began to lose track of the time and their appearances. We were lucky to have Blake's knowledge of construction because he lead us much like a boss leads his employees. We though that we would have a more experienced builder to guide us along, but with a sudden change of plans we had to work together and learn to build the ramp as a group.
As the day came to an end, we wiped the sweat from our brows, picked up our tools, and sighed with confidence as we looked over the progress we made all because of teamwork. That's what it's all about guys, teamworkCam said while sitting on the ground. When we were all packed into the cars, Marie Nagode suggested that we stop for Dairy Queen blizzards. We all shouted with glee and sang harmoniously while driving to the ice cream shop. Filled with ice cream, the confirmation class returned home for a delicious mac and cheese dinner. We look forward to a good night's sleep after a hard days work. By- Andrew with Hannah
