I had to leave early from the walk this morning but not too early to watch Addyson, Jack, Jace, Braelyn, Taegan and Kensley load into the van to go to VBS today.
We had quite a time at the Berean office. A storm was dumping copious amounts of rain as the mail was being picked up. When we opened the door to the Berean office we could hear the sound of rushing water. The water heater in the bathroom had popped it's top (what ever that means) and was pouring water out at a high rate. Robin quickly shut off the water then when Marvin and Mark K arrived they fixed the water heater. The morning became oppressively hot but when the air conditioner was turned on no cooling came out. Meister's was called and and we were put on the schedule for a repair man to come out in the afternoon. We had a lot of volunteers working so the office became over heated very quickly. The windows were opened but then it started raining again so the window bringing in the air had to be quickly shut. Somehow, someway we all got along even in the heat and finished most of the work before lunch. Mom got lunch ready and we ate in shifts. Caleb from Meister's arrived, found the problem and got it fixed for the afternoon so Marvin, Bill and I stayed until all the Bible requests were entered. That means I don't have to go in to work tomorrow. Special thanks to those 2 volunteers going above and beyond the call of duty. Pictures of the work there will be downloaded and entered tomorrow. I'm really tired today. The heat is draining us of energy. The mares were checked and hosed off. Dakota was teased and I thought finally showing. She was not covered though. She kicked violently, we will need to find out what is going on with her. The heat indexes are suppose to be running in the hundreds all week. Poor Indy and Roxanne. They were both sweating heavily today, it is no fun being heavy in foal when it is this hot and humid outside. The good news though is we got more than 2 inches of rain yesterday and this morning. The fields are greening up great.
