The days quickly pass as we ready the house for the grand opening on Saturday.
The progress Chantal has made on the house and land since December is nothing short of miraculous. Truly.
The inside of the house is now painted, and we have some basic furniture like beds and a few couches. The kids bunk beds have been re-sanded, vanished and possess new mattresses, sheets, pillow and blanket. The rooms like great. Chantal has done a beautiful job picking colors for all the rooms, but most especially the kid’s rooms.
The outside has made even more significant advancements. The corn has been harvested and the beans are now planted. We have the pig pen built – just need the pigs, same for rabbits and chickens….but it’s a start.
The playground is coming along beautifully, thanks to the many of you who contributed.
Some women from the village came over and helped wash the floors and windows. They also made up the beds in the kids rooms. It truly takes a village.
So much to do, so little time and so many more funds to raise.
