Hubby is gone in Arizona for a conference and then next week flies to Florida with KAT. Soooo I have a lot to accomplish at the property. Mostly sanding and staining pine boards for the rest of the soffit. I also need to put a second coat of paint on all the ceilings. Lots to do! The girls helped me yesterday which was awesome. They sanded the boards (they'll need to be sanded, two coats of stain put on, lightly sanded again and then a final coat of stain) while I worked on painting the garage (or living area in this phase) ceiling. I still have one half of the garage to paint and then I'll start staining.
Last night we went to dinner with my in-laws for my Father-in-laws birthday. Today the girls are going swimming with cousins so I'll have time to go up to the property and work. KAT got a bathing suit. A friend of ours had bought one for her honeymoon and it doesn't fit anymore. It's a very cute tankini and covers her well. We'll go tomorrow to find some board shorts to go with it. House, pumphouse to left Our neighbor mowed our property. It looks so good!
Hard at work loading up boards. I think they sanded about 30 boards. I'm thankful that we are teaching our girls to be hard workers. That doesn't mean they don't ever complain, but when they work, they work hard.
Notice the "not-so-happy" look on someones face in the background. She felt like big sister was taking over her job.
