A roof is born.

IMG_1110 Good mornin' to ya Vic! Most folks are woken up by an alarm clock. But not here. I'm greeted with a friendly team of folks that bang on my house.  Sat Aug 22, 2009. The day the roof will be complete. This is a BIG day.

Wednesday, Vic, Ralph, Jake and Rudy placed the majority of the roofing into place. And stayed well until dark to complete as much as possible.

It was an incredibly warm and humid evening. But the team did not give up. They never cease to amaze me.

If I wasn't so chicken of heights, I would have gone on up there to take better pics. My zoom from across the road was the best I could pull off.

Back to this fine Saturday Aug 22 AM. Rudy and Jake start the lower roof.

Thanks Janette, for the light as cloud homemade butterhorns with icing! They accompanied the rest of our lunch. And Bonnie biked over to join us.

It is complete. It's beautiful. And it will keep us safe from the elements and protect our most precious investment to date.

Cody and I have a brand spankin' new roof. A treasured gift from the help of our incredible friends.

Vic, Ralph, Rudy, Ben, Jake, Micah, Pete, Paul, Zach, Janette, and Bonnie, thank you so very very much for offering your gift of time over and over again for the roof project. And to the Yarrow MB church donators and roof sponsors for the materials.

And most importantly, thank-you God. He after all, started the whole thing, didn't He?
