Hitting the Bricks
[As transcribed by Daddy]
First thing that happened this morning was the arrival of several large deliveries of bricks, courtesy Gammy and Grandpa. We all unloaded the bricks and started a new retaining wall around the house to house a new garden.
While I rode my bike all over the street, everyone literally and proverbially hit the bricks and started building that wall! Bless Daddy's heart... he went back-and-forth from watching the Olympics to trying to chisel one single brick in half.
I was so proud of him when after what felt like an eternity, he was successful - unlike Canada's women's soccer team!
We all celebrated by not making dinner, and enjoying a huge takeout meal for all of us.
