Project Roof

My pictures are a little out of order here, but anyway....
This past weekend we enjoyed the hard work of putting a new roof on our house. We had so many friends and family members that came over to help out. Thank you so much. This would not have gotten done before all this crazy rain today without all the help.

Even the kids helped out.
Here is the first part that was done. (I don't think I even have a picture of the final product yet!) It turned out to be a much larger project than planned. But, we did expect it. We ran into a few areas of rotted plywood and beams, and some areas that we just never built correctly to begin with. I guess, at least we caught this mess now, before we had some major leaking!
Jared, Tim and Brad thinking about their next move. They are looking at a big hole (above) and trying to figure out how to rebuild this area correctly.

What a huge mess. This is only small picture of the mess that we had to clean up. And I hear from others who have roof to expect to find shingles in the yard for years to come!
Papa came to help clean up, after the dump trailer was already full. It was hot and sunny and LOTS of work loading and unloading the trailer! But I got some sun!! Jenna just hung out and enjoyed all the time outdoors!

Easter 2009

The Woolman kids at Granny and Papa's. Crazy mom made them all look into the sun. Taylor getting Easter eggs.

Taylor and Grace opening their Easter buckets! What great presents. Buckets, swim suits, towels, and beach balls. Fun for the sun.

Jenna finding her eggs. It took her a minute, but she did get the hang of it.

Thanks for the wonderful Easter treats Granny!

Easter Eggs or Humpty dumpty

We did Easter eggs with the girls last weekend. And besides making a mess we had to call all the kings men!
Taylor was very proud of her eggs. She would have colored a couple dozen if I would have let her! Jenna started off doing a good job coloring her egg......
Then she started getting a little rough....
Oops, it cracked....
And then we couldn't put Humpty Dumpty together again!!

Spring Time

It was such a nice day. The girls and I went for a 3mile walk on the trails at work and then came home to grill out and play outside. Daddy put the girls up in the tree for a picture.
