It's a John Deere

Today while the concrete contractors were digging for the footers to put up our pool enclosure Gary was using the neighbors John Deere to move the dirt to the back field. Tanek loved being able to ride on it with his Papa.

He is all smiles. He loves big machines.It isn't a bull dozer, but a tractor will do for now.

Tanek loves to talk about when he was a builder. He says he used to be a builder when he was big and now he is just being a little boy but when he gets grown he will be a builder again. He said today he was also going to build pools when he becomes a builder again. I was letting him see how hard they had to work and asked him if he was sure he wanted to work that hard and he said he did.

I took some pictures of all the work they are doing, but I am going to wait until the whole job is done because right now everything looks awful and a big mess. It is always a bigger mess to redo something I think than it is to just build it from scratch. I will be so glad to get the job done and everything cleaned back up.

Such fun times spent helping Papa

I bet Tanek was in heaven!! The girls were watching a crane working yesterday and were saying how much Tanek would love seeing it too, if only he were here. PLEASE post pictures of the work in progress! I can't wait to see it!

It is too ugly right now. Dirt, dirt and more dirt everywhere coming into the house, not a very pleasant time around here right now. I am sure it will all be worth it, but it is a mess now. Have a 16 inch deep whole almost the whole way around the pool. They will work on it again on Sat. Hopefully get the concrete poured first of week. I hate these jobs that start and stop with you left in the mess. But that is how they all work. Oh well. At least the concrete part 'should' be done when you get here.
