Progress reports

This week Jadzia brought home her first report card — or rather “mid-quarter progress report.” Her teacher had very nice things to say, and of course we are proud of how she is doing in school so far. Last week, Jadzia even got to host her grandpa for the school’s “Grandparents Day” festivities.

And I suppose it’s time for a progress report of a different kind: an update on our house. Keep reading for some more photos.

Proof of a new roof

Some friends on Facebook demanded that we provide photos of the work being done on our house. I present to you now photographic evidence that the project continues to progress. Perhaps by the end of today we’ll have all the new shingles up!

Masonry and excavation … Now that’s progress

Paid a visit to the house today to see how work was progressing, and also because the grass in the front yard was in danger of becoming a forest.

What I found was awesome. Lots of works, lots of work being done. New cinder-block walls are going up near the kitchen and the back yard has a big hole where a new foundation will be poured.

My weedwhacker didn’t cooperate, though. I think I flooded it. So I borrowed a neighbors’ mower. I soon remembered that not everybody keeps their mower set as high up as I do (same as my dad). still, the yard looks nice and the house is making progress.

Keep reading to see video of the work.

Teepee time

As we were leaving the farmers market to go to the library on Saturday, I smelled opportunity.

I had been thinking of buying a teepee for the girls. Since we have been temporarily exiled to Woodson terrace, I thought they might enjoy being able to play with it in the backyard.

So, as everyone went to the library, I headed back to the market and bought a nice brown teepee with a woolly black buffalo on the side.

Keep reading to see a video showing how the girls liked it.
