I am still in housekeeping at the moment and my new housekeeping supervisor will be coming in the end of August so that will be very nice to be relieved of some of those extra responsibilities.
The staff have been very active in the smmer we do alot of fun and invigorating things, such as hiking, kayaking, picnics, softball, and of course lots of volleyball. We had volleyball tournaments about a month ago those are so much fun but you are so worn out till they are over. My team was in 2nd place. We played a total of 14 games in a matter of 4 and half hours it was very intense.
We also had an outting for the residents we took them down to the pavilion and had burgers and potatoe salad and watermelon!! And they got to tour our new dorms!! Oh they loved it.
And every year Mountain View breaks the staff up into three groups and takes them on a paid staff day off. My group was so much fun and we went to Monticello which is Thomas Jeffersons house and plantation. Such a beautiful place. And then we went to Michie tavern and had lunch oh it was so delicious then we had a tour of the tavern and they had some shops along there. Then we went and hiked humped back rocks. Now that is a very strenuous hike. Straight up for 40 minutes. But the view is amazing you can literally see for miles. Then we headed back down and ate lunch in the park. It was an amazing day off and everyone was wore out till it was over.
Tonight 12 of us staff went out to eat at Buffalo Wild Wings that places food is really good!! Me and one of the girls shared a burger and some wings!! It was really nice to just relax and hang out with some random staff again!!
You can continue to pray for us as staff as we daily interact with the residents and their families and that we can show Christ to them by our every day lives!!
God Bless and continue to serve him where you are planted!!
Until next time!! ~Rose Mary
