Memorial Day Birdhouse

Sometimes, you just have to take a break from putting up fence, mowing, and tending the garden to get creative with your kids.  Sam took Memorial Day with the boys to resurrect a roofless old birdhouse we found on the property when we moved in.  The boys have anxiously been waiting for the painting portion of the project, but first there was much sanding, cutting, and hammering to be done.  In the meantime, Sam put together some creatively-cut wood scraps so the boys could "build" while they waited:

Here is the house with the roof finally on (it's on it's side with the roof facing forward):

Sam's sawing a bit to even things out:

Good thing there are lots of scraps and a hammer to "pretend" build during the down times:

We'll keep you posted with the final product sometime when I return from maternity leave!
