Pinata and Sleepout

Mr. Intellectual wanted a pinata for his birthday, so he made one.  I think this is when he filled it with candy, just before finishing it. In the background is Seth; this is the last picture ever taken of him, the day before he died.01-IMG_0716

A neighbor gave this building to the boys about six months ago. It was an old chicken coop, not in the best shape. He had a digger (excavator) in to do some work, and lifted this across the fence. The boys loaded it on a bike trailer and moved it here, then gutted it, insulated it, put up gib board (drywall) and finished it, then painted it. They learned how to install the window and door, too, and built a small bed in it. Mr. Intellectual moved in on his birthday, although now he’s moved back into the house.


The finished pinata—it was supposed to be an apple. We had church here at our house the Sunday after Seth’s death, and the children broke the pinata after lunch.
