A few facts about the school from which they hail:
The arrival of the students also marked the beginning of our transitional period from Florida Street to our new "build home" on 26th street. Old beat-up storage containers were emptied; materials were sorted and organized; good wood was transferred to the new site, and bad wood was carried away to the mulch yard. Another very cool project some of the students and teachers got to help with was learning how to lay rebar in preparation for pouring our next two concrete house slabs! They literally got to "lay the foundation" for the futures of our next two Partner Families :)
Through all of the labor intensive work, the group still took time to play! Their Art Instructor molded small, yet detailed, creations out of the clay of the earth. Here is a picture of the elephant he constructed on their second and final day with us:
In the midst of digging trenches, a game of Dirt Clod Baseball broke out, and some students made new friends with a couple of the local "freeloaders":
The students were so wonderful. Smart, funny and unique. One girl had a special connection to the project as a Habitat home recipient. She and her family are so grateful for their home, and she was happy to be a part of creating this opportunity for someone else.
It was such a joy having this group share their time and talents with us! We hope they enjoyed their time working with us and exploring the wonderful sites in Galveston and the Houston Bay Area!
To all of you who came out from Denver School of Science and Technology: We cannot thank you enough!
Much Love and Thanks, The BAHFH Crew
