Looky, Looky...

Look, we have a foundation and walls! Pest and his good friend Mr. T got a lot done on Saturday... they moved those 3 walls and put them up by themselves! Miss E really wanted to help, keeping her away while they were moving 500 lb walls was never ending! She did get to help a little bit, she helped hold the measuring tape, and was able to bring an occasional tool. She also found time to give daddy a wildflower tail! Most of the time she played in the dirt and practiced her balance beam walking on the largest (and last to be set) wall that was waiting in the grass. When it was time to set that wall, she had an incredible hissy fit - how would she go on without her balance beam? The fact that there was plenty of balance beam scrap lumber laying all over the place seemed to escape her... thankfully when we pointed that out she settled down!
Do you like the fingers in the ears? Miss E didn't like the sound of the power-nailer or the power saws!

The boys (Pest, Mr. T and another friend of Pest's, D.D.) put the roof on the addition Sunday - I'll post photos tomorrow, hopefully!
