When Judy and Fred were visiting this past trip, June got the chance to build a birdhouse using a little kit I bought! This kind of thing is right up Fred's alley.
It was so cute watching them together. June was very excited to help and Fred was very patient and accommodating with her. I'm not sure if I would have been quite as calm as he was while June was hammering away at those little nails right next to my fingers!
Fred wouldn't settle for any old birdhouse assembly so he reinforced all the edges with a little extra wood glue.
Our two builders and their finished product:
The next night we painted it! June did most of the painting but she did let me help out with the roof.
It's how hanging out on one of our trees out front. I'm hoping there's some (very small) bird out there who is interested in a new home!
