Not your typical job site

  The main reason we’re building this house is so we will have room for all these kids that have appeared over the years. It stands to reason that, if you are building a house for kids, you might expect to see a few around…

They show up in droves – usually after breakfast. house 005

They are good at digging…

…and a whole group of them can accomplish a lot in a short amount of time.

Some just supervise quietly

While others require constant supervision.

The rest need a total containment system.

Hitch hiking seems to be second nature:

Or maybe this is just the best way to make sure no one gets run over.

They distract the workers

and get all the credit for work done.

They are also good at finding artifacts.

In their world, everything is fun – Daddy is making mud pies? Can we help?

And with every outdoor project, there has to be a grub worm:

Good thing we have some water nearby!

    I am SO impressed that ya’ll are building your own home. At least you will know that it was built well and know who to contact if something should go wrong after you move in. :) And, it will probably be built faster than hiring someone to do it….at least that was our case. Thanks for keeping us updated.
