# Still Laughing
Pies were still in the ovens when the Kids arrived, so the work crews assembled and took care of some much needed repairs and other chores for me. Left to right: Larry and Susan, Katie, Sandra and Dave, Craig, Clay, and Deb.
The boys had nailed down that loose panel on the goat barn roof (good timing because it rained during the night), fixed a loose latch on Ruthie's door, and rehung the door to the empty stall. I wasn't sure how bedtime would go, but needn't have worried. Cindy went directly into her new room and gave a sigh of relief, "At last!" Esther, Inga and Tessie had better get along. I'm out of places to put cranky or picked-on individuals.
Leftovers packed up to go, hugs all around, and "Love you!" called out into the night. Bess and I walked back into a very, very quiet house. But listen. There are still the echoes of laughing.
It was a wonderful day.
