Roofing


The sad day finally came when Dad decided to re-roof our house...which meant taking off all the lovely old tiles, and replacing them withthe plain, modern day shingles....

We had done the far side of the house last year (it needed immediate attention) and had quite the crew of guys over to help.  But this year Dad decided to just do it ourselves!  And they did a GREAT job!!  Getting up early, working in the sun, (which resulted in some pretty cool early tans...and some pretty bad burns) and trying to beat the rain!

What a tragic face...given from the dramatic side of the family.  When I first saw this I thought it was real!!!!
...taking a short rest after his dramatic slide down the roof..

The working crew!  
What a HUGE blessing it was to have Josh home, it is so nice to have him around!!!!

With bruised thumbs, sore bodies and much darker skin they finally finished...ahead of the rain: )

Thanks, you guys...you did a fantastic job!!!
