School Work

The family carpenter.
Jared is really enjoying himself!
 At this point they had poured the basement and layed the trusses for the floor.
 Jared hangs out with a nice group of young men, though Jared is the youngest, they have quite a bit to offer each other. I love to hear the stories of the day.
 Before he started the program he was never tired at 9pm. I had told him that it will happen someday that he will be exhausted at the end of the day and when that happens I want him to come to me and say "Mom, it's happened....I'm tired."
Well, it happened. It was 7 pm about 5 weeks into the program and Jared sat at the dinner table and said, "Mom, it's happened....I am exhausted and feel like going to bed. It's only 7 oclock!"
We all had a good laugh.
Jared being the night owl that he is, is no longer a night owl. I always knew that, that might happen but it was so hard to see that when he was only 13 months old wanting to play at 2 am.
 We are really proud of the man he is becoming. His instructor is a man of good character as well. I love to have my kids around good mentors. An answered prayer.
I am bummed, just after we left, Jared is the only one that is of a good weight to ride out on that stick that they flatten the cement with. That would have been a great picture.
