Project Group to the RESCUE!!!

Well, it's been a while since I've blogged (big shocker!). So, this post is from back in APRIL! The play scape in the back yard is a common meeting place for not only our kids but the neighbors as well. Poor Thomas and Zac had started coming in with splinters from head to was obvious that the play scape needed to be refinished. I quickly did the math and realized my next turn to host the project group was the end of I prayed for warm weather! Josh and I took the power sander and had it all sanded and cleaned up before hand so that when the troops arrived we could get to the painting! I forgot to take a Before picture so these are "part way through" pictures. After only a few brush strokes the play scape was looking better than ever!

I didn't realize just how bad it really was until we started painting...
We were exhausted! Josh and I finished up around supper time that night. It was a LOT more work than we anticipated but worth it! Isn't it beautiful?!?!!?

I think Thomas' reaction says it...

Now these 3 can get back to playing on their "brand new" playground (...instead of the roof of Josh's old car).
