Chad managed to step on a nail Day 2 of the remodel...an INCREDIBLY rusty nail I might add for which he had to go get a tetanus shot and has been gimping around ever since! He should be back in action tomorrow! Mark came home today with a high fever and body aches and has been in bed all day. As I mentioned before, I had a small nervous breakdown this am for a few minutes, and Beth suffered the whole day with an intense headache...are we falling apart or what? hahahaha
Actually, I think the exhaustion just caught up with us all today, but we have really been enjoying ourselves. What a privilege to be with the construction group. They are an extension of the bethel family, so they start everyday with a text discussion, then they eat breakfast, then the read the yearbook for 10 minutes. They are very sweet! We truly are looking forward to getting to know them better!
Well, I took a few photos to share with you all, so I am going to post them and then go to bed!!!
I am officially OLD and go to bed early! hahahahah
We miss you all, and don't worry about us, although it seems like we are in sorry shape, we are doing fine and enjoying ourselves!!!
We had our Special Assembly Day on Sunday, and Chad, of course had a slight limp in his walk due to the fact that he has a 1 inch hole in his foot. Anyway, I see this brother also limping around. So, I jokingly ask Chad, "What happened to him?" And Chad replies with a grin..."He stepped on a nail at the remodel!" So after laughing uncontrollably about the irony of the whole situation...I decided to take a picture of the first 2 members of the "Hole in your foot" gang!
This is Chad's hand after the first day of the remodel. Can you tell that after all those years of a nail gun and cordless drill, the good old-fashioned "hammer and nail" was causing him a bit of difficulty!!!! I jokingly told the brother in charge today that he was slowly killing all the "gringos"!
As our friend Doug says, "The motto here is kill a gringo, save an Ecuadorian!"
