Farmwife's Journal - May 31st

The past few days the focus has been on our building project. Mike and the boys started putting the walls up on our market building/sugar shack Saturday afternoon, after we got home from a fun trip to the flea market. :) They worked out there until evening.

Getting started


 Again on Sunday, they worked all afternoon and into the evening.




Yesterday some friends came over (they have a bunch of boys) and they helped with the building too.  Their boys, like ours, wanted to learn more carpentry skills.

After the work was done, we had dinner, and then the guys set up a huge jumping house for the kids. :)  That was a hit! :)  ...and a fun reward after all the hard work in the hot sun.


Later in the evening, the bigger kids got out their instruments and sat out on the porch jamming away.  The adults (and eventually the smaller kids, who were still jumping) ended up joining in, and we sat out there singing and listening to the kids play.  It was great fun! :)
