It has been a fun week. We were given an alternator that had been pulled out of a wreck and was therefore marginal and in some cases severely damaged. Here are the pieces and the final painted project. The most amazing thing of all….it worked when I got it back together!


I also took the girls to collect maple sap. They boil it down to make maple syrup. This particular farm had hundreds of metal buckets hung on the trees. Our job was to go around and empty the buckets into our 5-gallon pails and then dump it into the wagon which followed us around through the mud. We got drenched but it was a great time. The girls did great; however, at one point when Jaelah got doused with the sap, she finally calmed down after I hollered that they should, “Stop acting like a bunch of girls!”.  They always appreciate that.
