Nearly there - the excitement is building

The girls are excited.  The chief and his family are proud.  Invitations are out.  Ann is covered in whitewash and we are in the count down stages to opening day.
Getting there slowly!  Welders finished and plastering left to complete.
Plastering the outside.
The news of Maronka's excellence and the community's hospitality is spreading and the numbers add daily.  The addition of the Girls' house has accelerated the problem (even if too many children is a good problem to have!)

Ann surveying her paintwork and the new bunk beds.
The plan is to open the Girls' House on Saturday, 1st October and to move the girls in during the preceding week.  A few sheet sleeping bags to sew yet but it is looking good.

  2. The current trends for bedrooms are exciting, the cluttered days of 100's of stuffed animals and blinding colors are over. Give your kid’s bedroom a modern make over, they will thank you for it!
    Bunk beds for kids come in wide range of varieties. There is so much from which to choose in terms of materials and designs used.
