As of supper time on Wednesday, July 9, the first part of the concrete pour is complete. The team worked really hard and very well and it was all done by 4:30 in the afternoon. Pour was delayed from Tuesday because there was still some steel tying to complete on Tuesday.
Weather has continued mostly hot and beautiful, but we did have a short time of rain on the afternoon of Tuesday, July 8, 2014.
Tomorrow we will do extra classes and do our final shopping at the central market in Guatemala City – the concrete needs to cure for a full day before we start laying block on it. Friday we will lay three courses of block, tie more steel and get ready for the second phase of concrete pouring (they do it differently down here).
The team is also teaching phonics to the children.
