Habitat for Humanity-Women Build Day

On Monday, May 8th, I participated in Women Build Day for Habitat for Humanity. What an awesome day that was. About 12 of us from KIGR helped build a home for the Ramierz family and it was an honor to be there. I thought we would be painting, but no-we were outside building the framework of the house. Hope and I learned how to use a saws-all and a chop saw. We cut out the windows and doors of their home. (God I hope their windows don't leak!) Bunny was a pro on the nailing side. (I am not such a good hammer person!) We had a great day and by the time it was over, I was covered in sawdust from head to toe. After our day, we all met at a bbq joint and had a well deserved beer. It never tasted so good!
