Bed Building, Day One
It's quite a flurry of carrying wooden bed components and opening up packages that hold mattress and pillow protectors, new pillows and sheets.
Others in the group are putting vinyl protectors on the mattresses and lining them in the hallway so that they'll be ready to go as soon as the beds are assembled.
The great "mommas" at the orphanage are very protective of their children. They're afraid they might cut off a finger while screwing screws into the slats. So, we may or may not have been keeping a vigil at the door and we may or may not have been letting them drill with supervision. And the boys may or may not have been extra smiley today as they claimed their own beds for future "sweet sleep".
I must go....our first rooms are finished and the children are anxious to come try them out. We're explaining the purpose of their beds and praying with them. Good stuff. Good, good stuff.
