Well

Micaela asked if we could build a “well.” It just so happened that the weekend before we did another major purge of our possessions, but for some random reason I kept the rope and pulley needed to build it. I easily tracked them down in the garage and got to work.

While scouring the woods behind our house for the right-size pieces, the kids hammered nails into wood, and Annie picked up metal out of the fire pit with a magnet. Micaela and Emeth built airplanes.

When Annie was done with the magnet, Emeth asked me to tie a string to it. He tried picking up my tools but the axe was a bit too heavy.

I finished the well. Success.

When we went inside Micaela and Emeth dressed up like Rachel and me.
