Today was a construction kind of day.
Just before lunch, Thomas showed up to take down our outside kitchen which is falling apart. Leonard came over to work on our steps.
Benjamin got to help them both (and found a snake in the process)!
Aaron rescued old nails and straightened them out for reuse. While the guys worked, the girls and I finished read-aloud on the porch. "Wheel on the School" is one of my favorite books to share!
By the time the bell rang for evening prayer, both of our hardworking neighbors had bellies full of popcorn, the kitchen consisted of only four posts, and our new steps were almost ready to be put in place. Leonard says he'll come back tomorrow and install the steps while we are at the wedding.
