Under Construction

With a house full of boys, we have more than a general interest in construction. This summer we’ve watched some neighbors get a new driveway, a fence go up between us and our next door neighbors and countless road construction projects in our area with great interest. The boys, especially the oldest, are always building something, and it is frequently referred to as construction. Roads get blocked in the house, and we are all instructed to go around while he pretends to jack hammer, bulldoze, pave, and otherwise rebuild whatever needed fixing.

It’s serious business, and I generally try to not stand in the way of progress around here. It’s also a great metaphor for so very many things that take place around here as we work together to build a family, grow healthy, happy boys, nurture a garden that feeds us, and create all kinds of things!
