Many hands really do make light work. Aaron had been working to make leaf panels all last week, but with just a few sets of extra hands, the panels were finished in a few hours. We shared our lunch (soup made with curry, coconut cream, pumpkin leaves, and local potatoes) as a small thank you and took a lunch break to help a little bit.
I tried to explain that we needed to read a book for school that was a book from England (Dickens' "Great Expectations") and that we had a recording to listen to, instead of me reading. The woman on the recording was from England, so they wouldn't be surprised when they heard somebody else in our house.
I popped back in the house for radio sched and started Olivia and Katherine through the showers while Sarah and Benjamin finished the last few panels outside. Thankfully, the bell for evening prayer was much later than usual. We never know if it's going to ring at 5:00 or 6:00 or somewhere in between.
