8 year olds with drills

hey everybody! i wanted to tell you all about our achievement days activity that we had last night. brother brower came to teach the girls all about handyman jobs and tools. it was sooooOOOOoooOo much fun! he taught them how to check the oil and change a flat tire on the car. then he showed them a variety of tools and their purposes. afterwards they had a little quiz to win starburst candies. they kept saying "this is so cool!". at one point he had the girls try to screw a screw into wood by hand and they were complaining that it was too hard and took too long so chris said "well then how about we use THIS!" and pulled out his drill! the girls thought that was awesome, they loved using it. everything was so hands-on that i think anyone would have had fun!
chris is remodeling our guest bathroom right now. its going to look FABULOUS! i cant wait to post some before and after shots!!! he is quite the handyman!

What?! I didn't know he was doing it. So, you gonna listen to my advice that I gave you at christmas time? Just kidding :) I'm sure it'll be beautiful!! Way to go, Chris!

actually, we are doing everything you told us EXCEPT...the color. we decided instead of doing it the same color as the bedroom to go with a light brown. it looks really nice with the blue.

I loved the new guest room. Thank you so much for sharing it with us! We had such a great time and I found myself missing Jack this morning. You have an adorable family, beautiful home and two new loyal friends in Washington. Thanks again for the hospitality!
