A Sacrificed Day Off

Thank you, Nikki, Matthias, Geoff, Ashley, Miri, Filipe, Jonas, Shona, Kezia, Eszter, Dan, Dan, Andy, Novie and Eden!
Our yard looks amazing!!

March 15th in Hungary, is a National Holiday which = day off. No school and No work! Yay! But man, did we work! and work hard. The interns blessed us greatly with some major elbow grease yesterday.
They showed up around 2 and worked until dinner! They weeded, pruned, raked, replaced poles, trimmed hedges, pulled up alot of dead and overgrown plants, pulled vines, cleared out the cellar roof, driveway and garage, moved totes and bins, someone even vacuumed my house since half of the yard made it inside ;) most by me! The list was absolutely endless, and quite overwhelming.
Andy and I walked around our yard last week and were overwhelmed with everything that needed to be done in preparation for furlough. We want to have our yard perfectly pruned and manicured before we leave knowing it will be a forest when we return. We have been praying for warm spring weather and praise the Lord for "YES" answered prayers :) We leave for furlough in 11 weeks but only have 4-5 free Saturdays to get everything done. This saved us 2-3 Saturdays having our interns come and help!! I still cannot believe how many came out, and how hard they worked. At the end of the day as we were preparing our individual pizzas, I asked Dan to come in and make his pizza and he says, "can I keep working on one last thing?" YES! of course, what a blessing these interns are!! Thank you guys and girls for your hard work we are grateful for everything you have done for us!
