NOLA update: Hard work in the Big Easy





Here's what happening in New Orleans...
The intrepid 2013 SACS volunteers at United Saints Recovery Project.

Dad's on the left in the back, my kids are (of course) front and center petting the fawn colored pup.

My boy has been stripping off rotten siding...
and pulling nails...
and unloading new siding.
My girl didn't just supervise, either...
she got into the siding business, too.
Hot work deserves a break...but still smiling.
Dad got to work hanging siding...
and measuring and cutting.
So proud of all of my family! The ones in NOLA and the ones here at home. It takes effort to keep the home fires burning when almost half of us are away from the nest but we're making it happen. Everyone is working hard, doing their part, and making a difference. Love it!

It seems that you guys have kind hearts. Your husband and your kids truly helped each other to succeed on this volunteer project. It shows in the picture that they enjoyed the work, especially your daughter. She did a fantastic job working on the sidings!
