Yesterday after school was the allotted time for my students to help me fix the hole in the wall they accidentally made. I cut a rectangle around the hole, and they helped get all the pieces out. The parts under the corner bead were really stuck in there, so they worked at it for a long time.
I got the last little pieces out after they left:
I was staying late for bells anyway, so I kept working on it. I got a patch piece put in:
I also got the tape and the first layer of patching compound on. I forgot to take a picture of it. It’s going to look really unfinished for church on Sunday morning, but I can’t do much about that. Each layer of patching compound I put on will require 24 hours of drying time before I put on the next layer.
