Wednesday, January 4th – We’re ready for Day 2 of the build. We know we have to work even harder than yesterday if we want to reach our goal.
Today we help build a staircase from scratch.
Step 1 – Mix rocks, sand, and concrete.
Step 2 – Add water and mix
Step 3 – Mix like crazy (as consistent as possible)
Step 4 – Fill the bucket with all the stuff we mixed
Step 5 – Pass the bucket along the leadership assembly line
Step 6 – Pour the concrete mix
After lunch, we took a little break to play with some new born puppies.
In the afternoon we got to socialize with the kids and play some games.
Time to get back to work… the kids came along to help out.
The afternoon brought some different tasks.
We even had a beam building competition – Team 1 vs Team 2. Basically a race to see who can complete one beam the fastest. Mike laid out the rules and gave each team 2 minutes to discuss strategy before starting.
Ready, set, go!
Winning teams gets ice cream!!!
A little bit of time to hang out and take pictures with the kids before we leave.
Back again tomorrow for Day 3.
