Update



For all of you that have been waiting breathlessly, here's another construction update. We've almost completed the decking, although we are still a long way from being finished. As you can see, we still need to add the bleachers along the front of the deck and the roof (to keep out the tropical rains). We have also come close to finishing the roof over our entry gate. Here's a photo of that project.


Tomorrow night, we'll be hosting a big cookout and outreach for the local youth. We took some flyers by the high school today so we're hoping for a big turnout. Anyone that has ever worked with youth knows that food is a big selling point. Should be fun.

Just for kicks, I have no idea how many people check this thing. I think it's one of the best ways of keeping everyone up to date but I wonder how often it's getting used. If you are reading these updates from time to time, please take a minute and hit the comment link at the bottom of the update, then send me a short note to let me know you are reading. We'd really appreciate it. Thanks.

Hey Barrett,
I check your blog every day for an update. I can't beleive the progress you guys are making on the deck. It's killing me not to be there with you guys working on it. Keep up the good work!

hey Barrett:
I'm very happy to see you blogging. I have a stat counter on my blog. At least two people every day come to my blog from your blog. I'm not sure if it's the same two people or not, but you have some traffic. People want to know what's up.

I subscribe to your blog and get to read it every time you update it.

By the way, I'm stealing pictures off your blog to possibly use on the new website I'm designing.

I'm happy to see you blogging. Keep up the great work. You're a good writer...
