We weren't home 24 hours from Illinois when the kids were complaining they were bored. My parents always said the cure for boredom was work. Our contractor has been away this week, visiting family, so I decided to have the kids help take apart the old deck to re-purpose some of the wood. Before you look at the pictures, please know that we had a lesson on safety around tools and rusty nails.
AJ's new favorite tool...the sledge hammer
AJ had a friend over in the afternoon and I made the boys help build the new retaining wall for the more garden space. Thanks, Nathan!
