Building Birdhouses With Grandfather

Birdhouses with Grandfather

Photo-A-Day 2.0 #00581

Our kids and my niece and Nephew got some real world building training from my dad today. Each Summer the kids attend Science School in Woods Hole. This year, however, tings are happening remotely with my sister, Tara in charge. My dad came up with the idea of building bird houses with the grandchildren. He had the scrap wood and he cut all the pieces to size and then set up a plank on sawhorses with taped off sections for each of the kids. He had some help in supervising the kids but he showed them how to hammer a nail and then he also drilled some guide holes for the kids. I did not get to see everything happening because I was taking my Krav Stripe test via Zoom in another part of the yard. The kids were so proud of their creations and loved spending time with my dad.

Tonight we had a movie night in the back yard and played an 80’s classic, The Karate Kid. Eva made it all through the movie but Andy decided that it was getting late so he put himself to bed.
