Boys like to dig....




As excited as I know Joe is to actually be doing something constructive toward getting the new house, I truly believe that a lot of his enjoyment right now is just a boy's innate desire to use machinery and dig in the dirt. He has spent nearly every spare moment out in the hole that will be our basement, and it's really coming along! He figures that we're about 3/4 of the way done digging, and Praise the Lord, we still haven't hit much limestone. Of course, he keeps track of his progress by using a funky, beeping laser light level doo-hicky, which is yet another toy that I'm quite sure he's mostly just playing with! But I'm so very proud of him - he's doing a great job, has a fantastic attitude, and well, let's face it - I like to watch him work without his shirt on!

I'm sure you are right... I'm just glad the guys like to play with tools and tear down/build stuff, cause I wouldn't like all that.
