My school!!!!!

So....Furman students have turned out for three years running. Every spring break since the storm, at least 30 students from the beautiful liberal arts college in Greenville, South Carolina show up and help out. They've also contributed 4 interns (summer 06), one of which is now on permanent staff (that would be me :). Sometimes this dedication has amazing results. This week, the Furman students got an amazing surprise. THEY GET TO BLITZ BUILD A HOUSE!!!! Now, it's a relaxed blitz, but they arrived with subflooring, and right now the walls are framed up and trusses are on. Today they will finish the sheeting and begin painting the siding and potentially roofing. I really do have pictures, and those pictures will be up as soon as I can load them from the camera. It's fun to have my friends here; it's really fun to watch these liberal arts students ( who are less than skilled with a hammer :) frame up a house! Thank you RUF Furman (and other students who showed up on their own!)...your dedication and commitment to return mean a lot to all of us, and especially me :)
