The challenge this weekend was to clean out one of our irrigation ditches. We are in the dry season and the pond was so overgrown that even the ducks couldn’t find a place to cool off.

A big job… but plenty of volunteers to do the work

even though the temperature was in the high nineties.

By late afternoon the whole trench was cleaned and the children could rest.

Sunday morning we pumped out most of the water and began phase two of the operation… catching the fish.

It is a dirty job, but the children love to do it…

especially most of the young ones.

Cleanup, however, is just as much fun and refreshing as the mud baths,

although the fish perhaps would have preferred to stay in the muddy water…

but to the victors belong the spoils.

Thanks for dropping in on us…
