Digging, Back-filling and Bees

This week we had a little bit of everything. The electrician and plumber finished wiring and pipes in the house. Zeke dug a huge trench for wiring from the house almost to the driveway. After that he and I cemented together piping in the trench and then backfilled a good portion of the trench, some is still left to be done. Jeff and Scott began the second layer of insulation on the siding of the house and were able to put in a few more windows. One of the pictures shows the kitchen, now with 2 more windows. Holes were dug for the posts of the front porch, as shown in one of the pictures above. Abby lost her other front tooth and was unable to put it under her pillow for the toothfairy (she did not swallow it... apparently she has an emotional attachment to this particular tooth). Paul was playing in the woods and unbeknownst to him, he stepped on a bee hive. Luckily, Sam, my 12 year old brother in law, was with him and realized what had happened. He grabbed Paul and ran. Paul was rescued and got away with only 2 bee stings, one on his arm and one on his ear. His arm was fine but his ear was really swollen, as you can see in the picture. A day later his ear is back to normal. Today Zeke, Jeff and Scott began the first pieces of siding on the house, I will post pictures next week. We also hope to soon have a basement floor and a front porch. The heat has been unbelievable this week and we are hoping for some cooler temperatures in the next couple of days.
