The first plan was to construct a replica African Hut for the snack station. So, I went to the guy who believes I can do anything (and is always willing to help me do it:) Especially if it involves kids and God. Blaine brought his chainsaw and machete which made the event all the more exciting:)
We started with a bunch of scrap lumber and tree limbs that Blaine had, and a big group of kids. The kids willingly helped haul and load limbs from the woods.
Then the frame work was put together.
We used lots and lots of twine string to tie everything together, in an authentic, true to form way of building a hut in the wilderness. Rob even had the day off to help:)
Lot's and lot's of lashing.
I was given the string-cutter job. Somebody had to do it:)
The near complete hut. Just needs a straw roof, which if the rain holds off, will hopefully be put on tomorrow after church.
(Most of) the crew.
