Work, work, work, work, work

Rihanna said it best.. We work, work, worked it, all the live long day! By the time your volunteer arrives home, they’ll be able to add ‘expert cement mixer’ and ‘brick maker’ to their resumes… That is just how skilled we are becoming on the job site! Today we got to layer the first coat…

Starting off the day with a walk to the beach. Not really ideal conditions with clouds and slight raining here and there, but easily one of the best sunrises I have ever partook on. After all, it’s the people around that make memories better!  A quick dip in the ocean and we headed back for…
