Fishers of men (of the little variety)
Work continued today at the foster home, the painting/stair-building house, and the siding house. Progress is steadily being made: we finished a deck (see picture below!) painted trim, mowed lawns, hung siding, and sanded drywall.
We took the kids to the Tennessee Aquarium in Chattanooga in the afternoon (see multiple fish, shark, etc. pictures below.) A lot was learned, and great fun was had, but we’re tired! Thanks for your prayers, especially for Ms. Castrodale; as an example of James 5:16, “The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective,” she zipped around the aquarium today with three third-graders in tow, and neither they nor she got eaten by a shark!
Well, it’s off to bed for us as we have completed a long day of work. Tomorrow we avoid getting eaten by mountain lions and bears, since today we survived the sharks, alligators, and sting rays.
