Yay, roof is on! We are now home after 10 days in Beaver.

My little "doo rag" dude. He watches his uncle Tim wear a "doo rag" under his floppy hat every day... now he has his own. A casualty of "roofing"... this fell a half a dozen times... I think it still works!! All taped up.

Unloading the steel.
Mike standing in Kim's doorway. Soon there will be a couple windows and doors. Oh yes, and a balcony so no one falls down the ramp to the basement.
Our little house on the hill.
Getting the back side finished first.
The color of the roof is great ... it matches our doors and window buckings perfectly.

With the help of our friend Mike D ... the three guys were able to finish up the roof in a little over a week...there are still some things to do ... but at least it's protected from the rain.
We stayed quite busy the entire time ... the girls do all the cooking and cleaning... and the boys are building a house. We can't feed the boys enough while they kill themselves with work.
Matthew is great....he's talking more and more. Not so much w/ eating, but oh well.. that will take time.

You've got pics of snow in the place, hope you can get the rest of the windows and doors in to avoid more pics like that this winter.

A home fit for a king! :D
Matthew looks adorable as usual.

Magoo feel so proud to be wearing the do-rag that Tim made for him. Now that the roof is on they can breath a sigh of relief. Once the windows are installed they will be pretty much set for fall and winter. Mike and Terri won't know how to act when they have to stay home for a full week or 10 days. My how life changes.......

Matthew has a school teacher now who will be coming 2 days a week. I am really excited about this. He is such a smart little boy.
