That would be great! Lucky her!

Today was the last day of school for our granddaughters… spring recess. They’re coming down on Saturday for a “sleep over” at grandma and grandpa’s. I wouldn’t put it past Olivia to suggest they spend several nights because of having a week off. :grinning:

Only one of our granddaughters could come this afternoon for a sleepover at grandma’s and grandpa’s house. Before she arrived I had gone down to my workshop, measured and cut a board to make two nesting platforms for cardinals. I drilled the holes for the screws for the girls to put together. I’d rather they use screws instead of swinging a hammer. :worried: about fingers and my head/face. :grinning:

The girls can assemble the platforms and either paint/decorate them as they want, or leave them "just plain ole wood. I think Eva (5) wants to paint them… and I’ve already been told by grandma, “Not in the kitchen!” :laughing: When they’re done, the girls have to decide where they want their father to mount them. I told them to make sure they’ll be able to see the nests from a window. :wink:

During the week it’s building for the robins, blue birds and… :roll_eyes: The girls seem to be making a list. I think I’m going to have to make a trip to the lumber yard. :face_with_raised_eyebrow:
