"If you are still in the process of raising children, be aware that the tiny fingerprints that show up on almost every newly cleaned surface, the toys scattered about the house, the piles and piles of laundry to be tackled will disappear all too soon and that you will—to your surprise—miss them profoundly."
-Pres. Thomas S. Monson

Week 8

This was the third full week of building and I am still so impressed with the progress our group is making!  The 5 houses that have lumber are all completed to subfloor, one house has all exterior walls up and is nearly done being framed on the inside, and one house is trussed and ready to be roofed!!!

We finished our first task on all of the houses this week (floor joists), and were trained to do top plate, Dallas on interior walls, and I learned how to build a staircase! I finished my first one on Saturday morning. It is such a cool feeling to see your work!

On the home front things are going well. The kids have been really good for the many babysitters they see each week. Will and Annie even act disappointed when they don't have one! Paige never cries for the sitters, but she has been punishing me. She is very clingy and cried whenever I walk out of her sight. I hope if will get better as we all continue to adjust. 

Jensen's house being trussed!

Molly Seawright, Jenna Baker and I were trained on staircases. We are the ultimate "Stair Masters!" (Molly is the one in the picture. These are the stairs in the Jensen's house).
