I'm using the swing set as an excuse to hang around the grandchildren for a few more days.
My oldest grandson and I worked on it for six hours today. It's about 1/3 finished. He's a great helper and I take every opportunity to let him tighten the bolt, read the plans, pick out the parts and square up the project. We've spent 12 hours together on this so far...It's the longest time we've done one-on-one.
Some of the parts were to cold in the freezing weather to flex properly, so we brought them inside to thaw out.
We got the swings, glider, slide, ladder and rock climbing wall assembled.
Tomorrow we build the fort and picnic area and attach the awning.
Beagles ran down the back property line today, baying at deer. They were following the trail of a herd that ran past, but following in the wrong direction.
In the morning I hope to knock out the rest of the project while they are in church...then run on down the road Monday morning.
