I am trying to catch you all up quickly on our happenings since last post. Kris has been making templates and notching purlins. They are ready now for placement tomorrow. I am sure there will be exciting pics of those! My parents, Catherine, and two of her girls came this past weekend. We went to the Creation Museum and enjoyed seeing family again. We were able to show our building to Doug and Shelly M. who were so instrumental in helping us see that we could build our own log home...they did! It was a full weekend but so good. As I am typing Kris, his Dad, and Micah are all watching B-ball. It is has been a beautiful day! Isabel discovered earthworms today as we were weeding our bulb garden. Smudge is covered in dirt from a recent dig. Wesley and Kristianna are perfecting their new climbing "tree". Kris and Dad W. are exhausted from getting all the purlins ready for tomorrow. They stayed safe despite renting the "widowmaker"...a 16" circular saw! We also refinished our bathtub today. It won't be needed for a while but we are excited to see something so old look so new. I hope you have had a great start to your work week. Look for pictures soon of what the house looks like with some more stability.
