Wrapping Up An Amazing Week!

20130325-201154.jpg

Above is a picture of our last supper together as a group in New Orleans at Charlie’s seafood. We all had a great time in New Orleans and I think it is pretty safe to say that all of us have lots of experiences to share with everyone now that we are back in Wisconsin! Even though our flight was delayed about an hour on Saturday, we made it back to Oshkosh safe and sound that night. Thank you to all of you who have helped make a trip a success by either donating money, reading the blog, or by just praying for us or thinking of us. All of the support is greatly appreciated!

“Where you at?”

Did you know that when someone asks where you are at in New Orleans, it means how are you? That’s what we learned from our tour guide Mike yesterday in the swamp :)

Above are pictures from our trip to the Battlefield of New Orleans! And below is a picture in front of our second house we worked on this week! We are wearing our awesome Alternative Spring Break trip tshirts. Check it out y’all!

Greetings From N.O.

Today we started painting on a new opportunity cost house with the St . Bernard Project. We worked with people from Colorado and Arkansas. It was fun and time flew by! Afterwards, we went on a swamp tour and saw turtles, alligators, snakes and a wild boar! Here is a picture we took before we got on the boat:

Would you like some paint with that? :)

Day 4

The New Orleans group went to the Clement Street Farmers Market for goodies this morning then relaxed in a park. Now we are eating our lunches before heading to the job site to work the 1pm-7pm shift.

P.S. It’s a lovely 73 degrees currently :)
