Good kids

Some families tote pails and shovels to the beach and their kids dig and play in the sand.

My children use the pail and shovel to gather up sawdust.  Poor, deprived little waifs.

The Hubs reported so much progress on the log house that I grabbed the bairns after school and took them up to the house.  As I marveled at new wiring and closet lights and walls and such, they started sweeping and cleaning up the sawdust!   Without prompting!  

Aren't they great?!

All the wiring and hammering and plumbing and such has resulted in a lot of prrrogresssss!

Dining room light fixture... minus two light bulbs and the globes, of course

Spare 'oom closet light

First floor bathroom tub/shower

Master bath sink & vanity (with medicine cabinet sitting on top of it because I made Bob hold it in place to show me what it would look like and then I forgot to remove it for the picture.  Oops.)

FIL Jim going to town mudding the hall closet.  Woot!

Hall closet, with light!

All the drywall is up in the first floor bathroom now!!

Soooo.... when you come to visit us in our new log house (you ARE coming to visit, aren't you?) and stay in the  spare 'oom with those lovely lights, you can just walk across the hall to the bathroom and behold:

Ye Medicine Cabinet!

Well, it doesn't look YET like it will hence, but imagine some drywall, paint, the sink & vanity....   you know the drill.  Er... routine.  I don't know -- perhaps you do know drills too.  That's not the point.  The point is....  well, frankly I've lost the thread.

Ahem, yes.  Hey, lookit:   a medicine cabinet in the first floor bathroom!

Our friend Dave has been helping the past few days as Bob and F-I-L Jim complete some wiring.  Today, Dave wired up some ceiling lights in the spare (first floor) bedroom:
