|Cub excavating a "bones." Archaeological find |
from the Prehistoric Indian Village.
|Cub and Bug|
We have had a crazy week. Cub did some excavating. Business as usual on Monday- math, reading, writing, science. Tutoring Center on Tuesday had Cub doing a grasshopper dissection which was cool and gross all at the same time. We found the SOTW CD's ( Yippee!) and that's pretty much what Cub and Flower did the rest of the week cause Tuesday evening (late) Miss R. and 3 Boyce Men arrived by minivan to work on the house. Business of the week was floors and doors. The guys sanded the floors on the 2nd floor for 3 days straight as well as did their fair share on the doors. KB, Miss. R, Feche and I stripped and sanded 80+ year old varnish off the 2nd floor doors and frames (which we took apart) while Viking Man superivised and built a false wall/dust catcher at the base of the stairs so that we can catch the dust from sanding the floors and stair case.

This past week was love in action. 4 college students, spending their own money to travel 14+ hours one way, to work on someone else's house for their fall break. We were blessed beyond measure. Lessons weighed, not so much on academics, but heavily on diligence and generosity of spirit.
