Grab a saw, or a hammer, or a crow bar, or a paint brush, or ... well, or just about anything, and you would fit right in with our family over the weekend. Our first project was Josh & Abbey's new house.
Goals on their new residence (which is located just a few miles west of our residence) include new flooring throughout the entire house, and new paint on every wall and the ceilings throughout the house. So, from Thursday through Saturday we spent much of our time over there, tearing up old flooring, priming walls and ceilings, painting walls and ceilings... pulling weeds in the flower beds, mowing the lawn and, in general, preparing the abode for inhabitation by its new owners.
Master bedroom/hallway/guest room - as they WERE. They look very different now, but all the "after pictures" are on Josh & Abbey's camera, which I believe is still over at the new house.
On Monday the men of the family headed down to Grandpa & Grandma's house to rebuild their deck.
Train 'em young, is our motto... so William got in on the act, too. The day was very productive as the men worked, and a few of us ladies drove down to visit for awhile as well.
We are so grateful for our family, and for the blessing of having them nearby. What a privilege it is to be able to tackle the projects of life together!
