Here's the building crew, posing atop the edifice: (left to right) Don (my father in law), Aaron (brother in law), Scott (sister in law's husband), Adam (brother in law), me, and my dad, Paul.
After days of wretched weather, we finally saw blue skies yesterday, and the pace picked up on our construction.
Aaron and Scott worked late into the night yesterday getting our roof shingled. Actually, it was only about 5:30, but it sure looks late!

Sarah had her ankle surgery yesterday. All went well--the surgeon cleaned out a bunch of scar tissue and drilled some holes to stimulate cartilege growth. But she's off that foot for the next six weeks. Yikes. Graham and I are going to do some serious bonding in the weeks to come. We'd never make it if Sarah's mom hadn't come to town to help out, though. Here's the patient crashed on the couch drugged into a happy slumber. Get well soon, babe--we need you!

It finally got dry enough this weekend to finish our foundation for the garage. The contractors finished digging the foundation this morning, it passed inspection around noon, and we poured in the afternoon.
Here Graham looks on in rapt attention. Perhaps someday Graham will go into construction?

Tonight Graham had his first sleep-over party. Jack's parents are at a wedding in Baltimore, so we had both of the Cracker Kids all day today and most of tomorrow. Jack and Graham played together this afternoon, and then we took them to the mall. After tacos at home, both of the boys needed a bath. Bathing is always so much more fun with someone to splash at.
