it runs!

video

Chay finally got the little blue 4 wheeler working. I was a little skeptical when he told me a year ago that he was going to buy a 20 year old 4 wheeler that doesn't run...but you know? After a year of tinkering and ordering parts after parts- it runs! It is so fun. I'm not sure what is more fun for Chay... having a 4 wheeler that runs or just fixing a 4 wheeler until it runs...He has already made mention of how he wants to get another project to work on. Oh my poor back porch- someday we will have a normal garage... you know how they say you subconsciously marry someone like your brothers?- well it is like serious childhood deja vu when I walk outside and see Chay hidden under his 4 wheeler with tools scattered everywhere-

oh and grass experts....any advice? I have fertilized, watered...what is wrong with my lawn? Is that a bug or fungus?

Oh, how fun. I loved Kenzie's little wave when you got close. Don't you love Dad's who love projects.

Mmmmm....Fixing Kenzie's little fourwheeler was so much fun. I can't wait for my next project...I just hope April is excited as I am when I come home in the next day or two with another project to work on. I'm so excited!!

um, yes you are officially a stocker. You should have left a message for me and then we could have been united sooner!! Sorry I missed your email when my sister died...I actually might have gotten it, but don't remember. Thanks anyway for being there for me. You know as well as me that sometimes the Lord asks us to go through things that we don't want to go through and it is the support of friends and family that make all the difference! Anyway, keep in touch and I'll keep updated with your blog...your girls are soooo cute!!!

I don't remember seeing any problems with your grass... Niels and I got dry spots in our lawn - due to grubs. Not sure if that is what you have or not. If so you can buy grub killer. Fun!
