|This was such a heavy load. At the store, I tried moving the cart a bit so I could get to the check-out counter and ugh! I could not move it an inch!!! (& I'm no wimp!)|
“Mom, we really need a front porch and I’ve been thinking…”
Sometimes, as Moms, we forget that our young men are just that. I am really making an effort to trust his plans and allow him to handle all of the details. It will not be long before he will have to lead his own family in decisions and I’d like for him to have had some practice. So, I reappeared - with some plants and some compost - just in time to catch a ride home!
He unloaded and sorted all of his material and began the building process as soon as we arrived home. I was available for a soundboard and Dad is always just a phone call away. Kirk worked steadily through the afternoon, even with the light rain falling. I snapped a photo here and there and Maggie, FRitW, and MT helped as needed.
|I just think MT is so cute wearing one of Kirk's shirts. He an FRitW think they are getting almost as big as Kirk because his shirts only come to their knees!! :) (What Kirk didn't tell them is that he outgrew these shirts a couple of years ago...)|
|No, I do NOT recommend bare feet during construction type work - or wearing your PJ's either - but that's Maggie for you...|
|I had a hard time getting a clear shot of FRitW - every picture of him is blurred because he is running. But here he is in his 'Kirk shirt". Did I mention how proud they were to get to wear his shirts?|
Kirk is always building something. For other projects - big and small click here, here, and here, oh! - and here.
