Sometimes I am brilliant!
Yesterday was one of those
days when I decided to enlist
Jonathan to help with the
This guy works with wood every
chance he gets. Often you can
find him on the deck with a small
saw and a sander making some sort
of wooden weapon.
He is a boy...he likes guns and
swords. He just does.
I wondered what he would do with
an actual piece of furniture.
It was better than I even hoped!
He really got into it.
For about two hours he worked at
taking the seat off, pulling the tacks,
glueing and tightening the chair, and

I helped by taking pictures of the

While Jonathan was busy at this, Mikey
was mowing our yard and those of the two
Later, Warren showed the boys how to change
the oil in one of our cars then he took
Jonathan out to practice driving.
It was a very "hands-on" day.
By the way...BIG NEWS...Mikey got a call
from Longwood Gardens and has an interview
about the Internship Program!!!!
It is still a very long shot since they have
never taken a homeschooler before...but we
are hopeful. The application process has been
a great experience for Mikey no matter what.
But, we really do hope he is accepted.
Chelsea got busy making cards yesterday and then
planned and helped to make our dinner. It was so
great. You can see one of the cards she made at
her blog here.
It was a good day with the kiddos.
Have a very wonderful weekend!
