Hard work

The first moonflower of this year - left in the early morning

This afternoon more digging began....

...under roots

...under the sidewalk

Buddy Hawk checking things out

John and Charlie attempting to meet under the sidewalk - just like the Hezekiah tunnel diggers

...only that was through rock

Scott and Rick measuring pipe

This part of the sidewalk is being removed

Hopefully this new drainage system will keep the church basement dry.

New Project begun...

Scott Kramer has been digging all day on the new drainage system.

Enjoying the bushes along the church ramp

 We enjoyed sitting at Mayor Dohanich's to watch the Coal Parade last Saturday

Israel - more of the Old City

always talking about Bible questions 
we had a knack for finding bakeries....

we all liked these ram horns, and Charlie bought one for a young friend

Charlie in line at the ATM, fearless as usual

Carts carried all kinds of stuff to the shops, since they could go through the skinny byways and even up the steps.

You figure out where we're going

a lower street

Our girl decided she wanted to take some photos today. 
Sable took this one last night

...but this one and all the rest are from Beth's first batch of photos.  Enjoy her perspective on life!
