While the Cat's Away

While David has been in Lima this week we have been doing some painting in the kitchen, living room, dining room, laundry room and hallway of the house. It is looking great! It is nice to have bigger children to help out.
I did all of the cutting in at the ceiling level.

Abigail and mom working in the laundry room.
This is the ugly green that was on the walls in the kitchen. Now it looks like this...
Clean bright walls, I love it!!
Yeah, this is how we all felt at the end of the day.
This girl inhaled too many paint fumes!

Family Work Time at Camp

On Tuesday, we went to camp for the afternoon. We enjoyed being able to do a bit of physical labor. It was a nice time together.
David, Steve, their dad and the camp caretaker all worked on putting up the beams to hold the roofing for the bathroom/shower area at the pool.

The girls worked on laying bricks for a sidewalk outside the dining room. It is harder than you might think to get the bricks level.
The finished product... it still needs to be extended down further, but this was the goal for today.
