From Abbey Myers:
High tensions, swollen thumbs, sun burns, and strange bites: the results from only a couple hours of work. In the matter of an hour the first house should be finished! It only needs half a wall and the roof. It feels great to look at the house and know that we were able to build something from nothing. The second house is another story. It is slowly coming along but it is extremely hard to know that we may be leaving it unfinished. It is also hard knowing we have to leave on Wednesday. Many of us have learned valuable lessons, formed friendships, worked hard, and are beginning to realize how painful it is going to be to say goodbye.
