There was pounding on the roof, a spinning ladder and elevator, and strange people stomping about, above our heads, for about an hour this morning. How exciting! We're getting a new roof tomorrow! Adina couldn't take her eyes off all that was going on, but after Ezekiel's lectures and punishment for the "I wanna pull my hair out!" day yesterday, nothing was going to distract him from what he needed to accomplish.
Well, I'm sure that he took a few peeks every now and again; but for the most part, this is what he was doing. I think that he felt terrible for how he'd behaved, because yesterday afternoon, he cleaned his room without being asked! He also kissed my toe, when Sophie (one of our dogs) raced over and sliced it with her toenail. (Her toenails probably need to be cut again, huh?!) Then, when I left, by myself for once, to go to the grocery store, he kissed and hugged me twice, told me that he loved me about a gazillion times, and walked me to the front door to say goodbye.
Anyway, back in July, we were sitting in the kids' playroom, getting everyone ready for church, and praying that the rain and wind would let up enough to be able to get to church without looking like wet dogs; when a huge branch, from our Sycamore tree, landed on the backside of our roof.
So, I thought maybe you'd like to see the the thank you card that I made for our knight in shining armor neighbor.
