We have company

These are 6 of the 14 Dartmouth students who joined us on Friday. It's a long story, but I'll give you the short version.

The student team, here like us for two weeks, moved into our volunteer house. They took part in the project on Saturday, mapping a portion of Pontchartrain Park and helping us with presentations for two neighborhood association meetings.

Our progress multiplied more than several times from Friday to Saturday. Our goal was to finish color coding Pontchartrain Park in 12 days. Within the first 2 days, we have finished about 30% of it.

And now we have 9 more Dartmouth students staying with us. Another Katrina Help service team just moved into our house this afternoon. Each of us took Sunday as some combination of rest, worship in local churches, and overall recharging of our batteries and organizing a household that has grown (unexpectedly) from 3 to 26 people in 48 hours.

I look forward to seeing what happens on Monday.
