Jawhorse is cool.

I used my Jawhorse to hold my lawn mower up while I figured out where the gas smell was coming from: the air filter was stuffed with oil and gas.

I cleaned the air filter with a 5-gallon bucket and some Evergreen, then put the air filter in a Ziploc bag and added a tablespoon of oil and then cleaned off the air filter with a paper towel using a lot of squeezes. The mower doesn’t stink up the shed near as much now.

Memorial Day Campout

We camped out on the lawn last night. It was a perfect day for a campout.

It rained just a tiny bit in the night, as it did the night before.

On Sunday, we put away the rest of the wood in the shed.

The wood is a mixed bag: some lumber, some split wood some rounds. But mostly it’s pretty dry. We’d load up the wheel barrel and then stack it in the shed.  Luke and J.C. played in the yard with Meg and kept her happy.

Mark was a real champ, sticking with me to the very end, even after a board with a nail on it dropped on his head for some serious pain—a bit of a goose egg, but no blood.

This morning on Memorial Day, we started off the day with summer school, six pages in each of the books. Mark is doing a 4th grade book, Luke is doing a 1st grade book, and John Caleb is doing a Preschool book.
