Busy Week

Much to do this week!

We get to see Isaac in his school play, Calamity James

Addie has a gymnastics meet

I get to hear Julie Beck speak

Wes continues to work slowly but surely on prepping the bathroom for the shower and tile installation. With what little time he has had to work on it, it is amazing how much he has accomplished! After completely ripping out the shower and floor, he replaced the drywall, rewired our built-in ironing board, nailed in boards for placement of the subfloor, moved the toilet pipes so our toilet can be closer to the wall (more room for the shower), and replaced the plumbing pipes for the toilet and the shower. This is not really "work" for him - this is pure enjoyment. He loves using his new tools (he finally had an excuse to buy a sawzall - and he can't stop talking about how much he loves this saw!) and taking measurements and doing math to figure things out. He only wishes he had more time to work on it.
I don't know if I will get around to much blogging. We'll see!

Life with kids is crazy busy!
Good work Wes, we really need a remodel in our bathroom when you are done, please;-).

Good luck with your busy week. So many things to look forward to. Addie looks so tall. Wes is a man who can wear many hats well. We are proud of Isaac, sharing his talents on stage.

What a fun week! I am still envious that Wes can do all that -- it's a pity Chris isn't close enough to learn from him. My house would look completely different if Chris had any of his skills!

wow!! That's totally amazing that Wes has done all of that on his own. And I thought Adam was handy. That is super cool. Good for you guys for just diving into it. And that's so cute about Isaac's play. I love the name.
