Earlier this school year Julia wrote a research paper on the life of Susan B. Anthony. She learned many things about the strong woman suffragist, and today she decided to pull out one of the trivial, fun facts from her life and emulate it! Once, as a young woman, during a season when Susan's father was building houses for the school teachers and his own family in their New York town, Susan made lemonade and gingerbread cookies for all the helpers. Today Julia did just that! First thing this morning, she was up baking the gingerbread she'd prepared last night to share.

As the high lift and track hoe took down trees and pushed them into piles, Randy sawed the timber into logs and piled them for next year's firewood. What he didn't keep he threw onto a huge bonfire. I think this building project will definitely enhance his masculine physique with nice muscles! Levi helped and I tried to keep everyone else from becoming too dirty! (HA!)
Tomorrow is another day of dirt pushing, finishing the grading, and leveling the plot where the house will be. Randy heads to work tomorrow, and I'll keep up here!
