"Compassion Weekend" was last weekend. I can't say enough good things about the people running 2nd Mile and their crew. Keeping 1000 volunteers on motivated and productive is no simple task... neither is completely renovating a middle school in two days! I am exhausted and sunburned, but also completely inspired and moved by what took place in those two days. I was so blessed to play a small role in this renovation! My favorite part was watching all of the little ones, mine especially, jumping at the chance to help strangers.
Now it's time to get back to every day life, and catch up on the to-do list that has been so badly neglected in the last few weeks!
Thousands of volunteers working like crazy!

My little man helping any way he could, and SO excited to do it!
