Well hello there world. I have taken over your radioooo (I really hope you sang that sentence like the song from Space Jam).
I decided you all were probably tired of hearing from Clay all day erry day. So, alas, here I am (T-Moon).
Today we had a full day of working at our houses. Let me tell you that it was super hard waking up this morning <confession - I really contemplated playing "sick" so I could sleep in a little more; don't worry, I resisted that temptation>. We all made it to our sites and worked really hard (at least I know my team did for sure, I can't really speak for the others). (Bryson says, "Hi"). My team finsihed putting in our wood flooring and all the baseboards and quarter rounds. This means that we were inside a house that has no air conditioning in the midst of the Lousiana humidity/heat. I literally had sweat pouring off of my entire body, like we could've made a slip-n-slide using the perspiration from my body. It was crazy. No worries moms, we are making sure that everyone is drinking plenty of water to replenish that fluid lost in the act of sweating.
After working we came back to the facilities to shower and eat delicious food (jambalaya). After dinner a couple that had their house destroyed during Katrina came and told us their story. It was super moving and really educational in regards to the process of recovery work and just how long it has taken and is still taking for people to get over Katrina. Then we got to go to a local sno-cone place and eat snoballs (which is what the locals call sno-cones). They were delicious and refreshing; they also made all the students have crazy sugar rushes....We also had plenty of free time to play games and chillax, which helped blow off all that sugar.
Everybody is going to bed right now because lights out is in 2 minutes. I too will be going to bed soon as I am very tired, as you can probably tell by my rambling right now.
P.S. Milagros says, "hi mom."
