July 16: Today our BIG dumpster arrived in preparation for our roofing project. Is it weird that I put my boys in the dumpster to take their picture? They thought it was fun, so I guess I'll stick with fun rather than strange.
July 17: I thought the clouds looked lovely today. We could use some cloud cover for our roofing project, but NO rain!
July 18: Today I realized that I never take pictures of Mount Timpanogos in the summer. So here is the view behind my house for this time of year.
July 19: I drive by this enormous carved corn cob on my way to a nearby Wal*Mart. It's lovely, don't you think?
July 20: We started working on the roof today. By the end of the day we had shoveled the shingles off half of the house! Hooray! The forecast called for sunny weather all week. So of course at 10:30 p.m. it started to pour buckets. So we were on the roof in the dark spreading out tarps and drop cloths so the water would not soak into the plywood. Fun times, let me tell you!
July 21: After putting the boys to bed I went up to check out the progress on the roof. The back side of the roof is completely covered with underlayment so now we don't have to worry about water. There are also some new shingles up there. Hooray! So I got to relax and watch the sunset from the rooftop. So beautiful! I couldn't decide which picture I liked better, so you get both.
July 22: New shingles are a beautiful sight to behold! This evening while I am at work a bunch of our friends will show up to help shovel the shingles off the front of our house. Then we will really get to laying the rest of the shingles! We are so happy for the help because Honey Daddy and Papa are exhausted!
