Afternoon at the Women in Transition House

After lunch, Caleb and I headed to north Champaign to see how we could help out with the house that is being refurbished for Women in Transition. Jan Siders met us there, checked out the progress that had been made since she and Jeanne painted "our" adopted room. Then she made a run to the paint store for some primer.
Caleb and I spent a couple of hours sanding woodwork and patching nail holes in the recently installed trim. We were supervised by David Kay, who has put in COUNTLESS HOURS (unless maybe he's counted them!) on this project. He's still cheerful and optimistic. What a blessing!
The house is beginning to take it's final shape. The floors are in. Walls are painted, cabinets installed, etc. Still no plumbing fixtures and the power hasn't been hooked into all that wonderful new wiring Kirk did. But things are certainly moving along.
Just thought you might want to know.
