Walking it out from the shop! I gave them no quarter.. lol.
Tori just manhandles stuff. She is going to make a great boss some day.
Attaching the “Little free library” sign that they made yesterday.
Mounting it onto the post! They did it all.. I did not even help them carry it over. I was too busy taking pictures and video..smile.
Screwing it in!

We started out the 4th Holiday weekend with seeing Hannah and Sterling off on an adventure to RTX, (Rooster Teeth Convention) Hannah has really been working on improving her Cosplay of Yang. (Check out the chain mail)
Gluing as Nailing. The nailgun does really help.
I think they were enjoying the nailgun a tad too much. That little library is built like a tank now!
THe only thing I did was cut the wood.. the kids put the whole thing together.. For real, it was all on them.
And they did a great Job too!
Painting is next!
It’s going to look great! The door and the roof goes on tomorrow, and then we will mount it in the park!
Melinda got to ride the Motorcycle for the first time this week. She is a natural.
I kid you not, she did not even stall it once. She asked to go to Arthur’s to ride in the woods.
Last weekend was the Pride Parade in Augusta. Wow, I was impressed with the size, and also the participants. Lots of Businesses where represented.
Big Parade! And there was a party in the park across the street afterward. Fun!Activities, Holidays, kids, makerspace, projects | Tags: little library | Comment (0)
Well, Rockwell had a blast on the motorcycle.. He will have even more fun when he makes his hand strong enough to pull in the clutch to change gears! I have to say, this IS a great motorcycle to learn on. First gear top speed is.. not fast.
Hannah is going to RTX this year, so she is working on improving her Cosplay costume. She is making a Chainmail sash for it.
And I scanned a bunch of Hannahs art projects from this year, This one was too big to scan so I took a picture of it. It is called “Through the Keyhole” and she received an “A” for it. She had a narrative.. I have to look at it again.Activities, school | Tags: art | Comment (0)
My sister asked where Hannah will be staying, and what language they speak.
She will be staying at Kathi’s sisters house in Lucerne Switzerland, and be immersed in Swiss-German.
It’s all so exciting.. And, I have to say, Teri and Juerg’s house is in, lets say, a picturesque location? For instance, this is looking (East I believe?) out the Kitchen window. Yes. That is looking over a Vineyard, onto lake Lucerne, with the Swiss Alps beyond that.
I mean.. really? This is a postcard, not a view from a normal persons yard. jeesh. In case you are wondering, they are not independently wealthy.
This is the view to the south I believe?
Here is a map of Lucerne.Events | Tags: Switzerland | Comment (1)
As you know, Hannah was dissapointed in not getting into the SCGSSM (Gov. school of Science and Math). But don’t ever let anything get in your way. Kathi’s sister Teri found a Science and math School in Switzerland that was very interested in Hannah attending. They said they dont often get female exchange students that like Science and Math! Well; They got one now.
A note that Teri mentioned on facebook:
I will add here (not too much pressure ) Kantonalschule Alpenquai is the best highschool in Central Switzerland. We have 4 levels of HS when kids leave 6th grade if the have an 5.2 grade pt ave out of 6 they go to Kantonalschule. Next lower is Oberstufe A, then Oberstufe B and then C level. Hannah will be with the top top students all around.
No, not too much pressure.
I think this might be remembered as the summer of motorcycles.
I broke down and purchased a used Honda XR100R.. The epitome of starter bikes. You almost can’t find a better bike to learn to ride on. Melinda and Rockwell will have a blast on it. Got it for 500$! Could not pass it up.
And Hannah has expressed interest in rebuilding the old Honda CB175 that has been hanging around (Literally and figuratively.. lol) for 25 or so years. (Got this one free on the south side of Chicago in the 80s! (NO its not stolen!))kids, seasons | Tags: motorcycles | Comment (0)
