THESE BOOTS ARE MADE FOR WORKING!

THE H. MEN ARE UP TO A LOT OF WORK THESE DAYS! THE DESTRUCTION PHASE OF OUR REMODEL PROJECT CONTINUES. DADDY AND THE BOYS CONTINUE TO WORK HARD AT MAKING THIS OLD WONDERFUL HOUSE OUR HOME. WE HAVE REMOVED THE BACK SECTION OF THE HOUSE THAT WAS DAMAGED TO GET READY FOR THE ADDITION.

DURINGAFTER
MARK RENTED A SMALL BULLDOZER TO TEAR DOWN AN OLD GARAGE/WORKSHOP ON THE BACK OF THE PROPERTY AS WELL AS REMOVE STUMPS AND LEVEL OUT THE AREA WE WILL BE POURING CONCRETE IN THE NEXT FEW WEEKS. MARK AND OUR FRIEND PAUL WERE LIKE TWO LITTLE BOYS IN A SANDBOX PLAYING WITH THEIR TONKA DUMPTRUCKS. I GUESS THIS IS THE KIND OF FUN YOU NEVER OUTGROW.
I FOUND MYSELF AMAZED BY THIS MACHINE AS WELL! IT TOOK THE ROOF OFF OF THIS OLD BUILDING LIKE IT WAS NOTHING. THE BOYS AND I STOOD BACK AND WATCHED WHILE THE MEN TOOK CARE OF THIS TASK. I HAVE TO ADMIT I COULDN'T STOP WATCHING UNTIL IT CAME ALL THE WAY DOWN.
MASON SPENT THE NEXT SEVERAL HOURS TEARING OFF BOARDS AND LOADING THE TRAILER FOR HE AND HIS DAD TO TAKE OUT TO THE BURN PILE. I LOVE WATCHING THE BOYS HAVE THIS "MAN TIME" WITH THEIR DAD. I KNOW IT WILL BE SOMETHING THEY NEVER FORGET AND MEMORIES THAT MARK WILL CHERISH FOR YEARS AS WE LIVE OUR LIVES IN THE HOUSE THEY BUILD TOGETHER.

Wow, I want to see your house that your working on sometime. That's awesome that Mark and the boys are working on it together. It will mean so much more to all of you. And you will be neighbors to that cute little Max! What great friends he will have to play with, and great examples!
