HELPING

We had the opportunity to help out with a Habitat for Humanity home tonight. A very deserving family are getting a new home. SO EXCITED FOR THEM!

Tonight we built the walls. We only got to be there for a little while but it felt great to be a part of something so huge for this family. I sure hope we get to go help out again.

The mother is very involved in Girl Scouting so she assures me that we will have a Girl Scout day so that our troops can come help out too.


Coco driving some nails


They blocked off part of the street so that we could make the walls.

Friends working side by side. Tammy has to put in so many hours as the homeowner but each hour that her friends work goes towards her hours.

I hope the lesson to be learned here is not lost on my Coco.

There were a group of high school students from Bentonville there helping out. They are part of the Habitat club that they started at the Bentonville High School. Isn't that the coolest thing. One of the girls was showing me how to hammer the nails. Sad but those nails were like a mile long and they kept bending on me.  Back to the Habitat Club, I sure hope that they can rub off on our high school kids! Something I would definetly support!
