THANK YOU Grandpa!!!

My Grandpa left today. He is probably taking a nap right now.

That's because he has worked so hard this week putting our shelves together for the store.

He made it a learning project for Matt.

They worked side by side for a few days.

Hammering and drilling and painting.

My grandpa did the stuff with the saw. They worked in the basement of our building. My dad rent's that room for storing old medical records.

It made a great place to work. Watch your fingers Matt.

Yikes, what are they doing? Do you see the wheels. Every case has them so we can move them around the store if we want to.

Even TJ got into the construction. He has been a big helper too. He already knew how to use the tools though so he got right to work.

Today I went over to see how they look.


Grandpa is showing me how the sander works because I am going to get to do some final sanding next week. My mom says I have to wear goggles and a mask. Haaa, that should be fun.

Good on you for using the sander. That's a wonderful way to finish up the job Grandpa and the guys have worked so hard on.

And clean up afterwards and have a party. (Or some kind of celebration).

Hope Grandpa is resting.
