Avery's third grade culminating project- build a structure- is nearly done. He's done every aspect of the construction, from drawing to sawing, measuring to tightening screws.
Our wonderful friend Bob took this project on himself- perhaps Avery's parents were moving too slowly?- from showing up with a truckload of posts and a post hole digger, to buying supplies and making sure Avery learns each step. It's been a tremendous blessing, for I'm sure if it were left up to us, we'd still be in the making excuses for not starting the project phase. Having a friend with the time and generosity to make sure this project happens has been wonderful.
Here's the last little bit they need to finish- the railings in the one back section, and trap door. But they can play up there, now. I think we'll attach the rope ladder for now.
