Powertools & Library Books

My cordless nailgun arrived. Party time this weekend! I'm going to shoot down some floorboards in the kitchen. And case out the windows in the dining room and kitchen.

Liam wants to help. At least he thinks he does. We'll see how it goes. He likes helping with the mitre saw. And since I won't need a loud air compress for the nailgun, I think there's a good chance he'll like that, now.

Picture of him wearing his "work goggles," and modeling the gun. Click to enlarge.

Meg's tale of the day was that she "finally got to check out a library book." She's in kindergarten and couldn't check out any books until now. But she's already reading like a champ. I don't know how much she taught herself or if she absorbed some of it from her brother or if the "jolly phonics" from last year are just very (VERY!) effective. But I caught a video of her reading part of the very first book she ever checked out.
