Yea! It was time for a break. Sophie's school celebrated with an end of the week picnic.
Then Friday night we headed out to camp at the new Water For All property in Paint Rock. They will be doing drilling classes there starting next week and the place needed a little fixing up. Lots of deacons and other people from the church came out to help. Only a few of us were brave enough to camp out, though.
