"Right There" is relative. We finally got the pile of 3/4 River Rock to put in the tanks after we clean them. By hand. It is not a hard process but it is insanely time consuming and tedious. After borrowing all of the materials we need we place a screen over a tub, place rocks on the screen, scrub them while one person pours water, then we dump them into a wheel barrel where we pull out all of the small sticks that could clog the system, to the best of our ability. Then we dump the stones into one of the eight tanks we disconnected, carried to the water tower, and cleaned, which involved disconnecting the pipes we had glued together a few days before and taking the underground tank out of the mudpit with Carlos. We also painted all of the pipes that were not already painted blue, then after the rain washed all of that off, we painted them again. We have 5 tanks filled with stone, and it is a very sensitive system so we push forward in faith as we mess with the leveling and pray that it all works out to sustain the school. 1 Corinthians 15:58 "Therefore brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your work is not in vain in the Lord." It's not in vain, God is going to use this, if not for the school, because of the process I've learned so many new skills, so much more Spanish, and I got to grow closer to Carlos, a man completely and totally sold out to God.
It has also been an absolute mud pit from all the rain, and the cows didn't want to help, just watch us work.
