Dad The Builder

Hey guys, I thought you'd like to see what Dad is building. He bought this kit to build a shed waaay back when...like the beginning of Spring! Well, he's been working on it for the past few weeks. He opened the box, then put it away. A couple of weeks later, he graded a nice spot to put it using his big tractor. He covered the ground with plastic, then built the floor frame and then the floor. Stay tune for the on going saga of 'Dad The Builder'. At this rate, it will be on going for quite some time.Ü This is where we are now:

I love my Dad and he can do most anything. Reminds me of a song that goes like this....
My dad's the smartest guy,
And my dad's the bravest guy,
And my dad's the neatest guy,
It's positively so.
Maybe I'll introduce you,
Then you'll know that it's the truth,
That my dad,
My dad's the greatest guy you know!

Yeah, it's been a long time. Mom's pretty bad about keeping this thing updated! I'm happy to report that she is FINALLY well. Old people take a long time to recover you know. Now me, I bounced back in about a week but poor old mom took about a month.

I've been enjoying all my activities with Clay. He really makes things fun. I do miss swimming though. They closed the Olympic pool for the winter, and it has gotten pretty cold so I understand. Clay got his mission call and is going into the MTC on December 3rd. I'm really going to miss him. It's been nice to have a guy pal to do things with. Mom and Dad are okay, but they're just not as fun as Clay is.

You all probably heard that my Dad got 3rd in his age division (60-65) at Coos Bay. Mom and I were proud of him and he was pleased with his results. He's getting ready to run another 10K in Logan on November 1.

Mom has been asked to be a chairman for a big Humanitarian project at Church that our ward is doing. She is over painting 100 toy cars by mid November. This should be fun . . . I like paint!

Mom got all excited the other day. I got tired of waiting for her to make my pizza, so I got up and did it myself! I got out the corn tortilla, the pizza sauce and the pizza cheese. Then I got a plate, put the tortillas on it, spread the pizza sauce on the tortillas, then put the cheese on. ALL BY MYSELF! I didn't think she'd want me to use the microwave by myself so I just waited for her to come do that. She was so surprised, happy, and proud of me. I was proud of myself too!

Another great thing that I've been doing for a while, is when I want to get Mom's attention and she is upstairs, I click the hall light on as a signal to her that I want her. It works really well, and boy, does she come running. I thought that was pretty ingenious of me. Mom and Dad both are quite proud of me.
