Workday On Our Property...

...and a lot of fun fellowship!!!

Last Saturday, the Thomases (minus Mrs. Thomas and Melanie who were here) came up and helped do a lot of work around our property.  Lt. Harris joined us for the day as well and we were greatly blessed by everything that was accomplished - and by the wonderful fellowship too!!!  Thank you all so much!!!

Working

This huge toad (the picture really doesn't show how big he was) crawled out of one of the holes that was dug.  I think we disturbed its winter nap!

Some of the kids 
-poor Marscel hurt his eye a couple days before they came, so he was taking it easy that day.  

The work crew

A closer view
Unfortunately, I was told after the fact that I missed out on taking pictures of the grand wheelbarrow races that occurred that afternoon. :)  So we shall have to leave that to your imagination!

After they were done outside, Micaiah helped me finish dinner -thanks Micaiah!  It was a lot of fun!

I had to keep Micaiah from sneaking a taste and getting germs in the soup! :)
The soup turned out great!!!

(Thanks for the pictures Matthew!)
