To celebrate, we spent the day down at the pool having swim races and our annual cut-throat competition--King of the Plank. There was rain on and off during the afternoon, but it cleared up nicely for the bonfire. On Monday the guys built the wood stack and covered it against the rain we hoped we'd get.
Last night we lit it up, and the kids had a blast running around it, falling down when the bamboo exploded, and playing their different singing games.
This week we have had three good soaking rains--Praise the Lord! Hopefully this will get the wells and rivers filled up to where they need to be. God is good!
