Once our patient was in her home, there was still one more thing that needed to be done.
The house was ready, but the outhouse still needed to be mudded. We found some willing volunteers.
In place of our normal Thursday afternoon school reading time, followed by art class,
we headed out to the town to do some work.
|The structure was in place, and we just needed to pack mud between the sticks.|
|Our youngest volunteer shows off her muddy hands.|
|The kids worked hard, running back and forth between the mud pit and the outhouse with mud, then packing the mud into place to form the walls.|
|Ian had some girls giggling over him and everything he did.|
They seemed to think he was really cute.
He was not amused.
|This wall is almost done!|
|At the end everyone was quite a bit dirtier than when they started.|
We got some interesting looks walking back home!
