Building wooden bird houses
The other day – Eddie was inspired!
he was inspired to eat a worm because he just read “How to eat Fried Worms” 🐛 . Thankfully – he decided NOT to eat it, and he set the worm free!
Second, he was inspired to build a bird house out of wood!
His new carpentry skills and inspiration happened because he loves his mama ❤️️!
HOW IT STARTED…
I was sad that the kids’ old picnic table was being destined for the trash!
I had bought the table for a dollar at a garage sale years ago and the kids helped repair and paint it…
Pieces were missing again, there was rotten wood, and the kids are probably technically too big for it… but I loved the table and all the memories that went with it!
I was reluctant to let it go and voiced hope for the table- but my husband told me to let it go… (we try not to hold onto things just for memories sake).
Well- Eddie heard me and decided to fix the table for me… all by himself! 😍
Then he used it as a workshop table- and built a birdhouse for me- ALL BY HIMSELF!
…and then he built me another birdhouse!
Eddie has a heart of gold!! 😊❤️️
I have seen a bird in both houses already!!! I’m so excited for the new families in the yard!!!
After church we ran some errands- one of which was to buy deck screws so everyone could build with wood. We went to Lowes and a large box cost… $30!!!
I bought the box- knowing it would bring lots of joy and experience for the kids…
…and then I drove past an estate sale! I stopped and bought all their nails and screws and hammers 🔨 for $20!
NOW THE KIDS ARE OUTSIDE SAWING AND DRILLING AND HAMMERING!!
