almost there

My in-laws came to visit over the weekend and we put them to work on the coop!  The weather was beautiful and in between soccer games, gymnastics, and church events my father-in-law taught me how to install a roof.

While the adults worked on the coop the kids set up camp in the back yard...

Micah needed to make his own lean-to and sleep in it to earn his camping badge with Trail Life.

We've got so many caterpillars in our yard I was afraid Micah might wake up in a cocoon in the morning, but he made it through the night unscathed :)

Addie, Tallulah, Max, and Regan all slept in the tent.

I was a little intimidated by the nail gun at first but it really wasn't hard to use at all.

Looks done from this side :)

But I still need to make the doors and put the trim on.

And then it's on to the run!
Thank to my in-laws, who I am sure would have much rather just come and have a restful visit but instead willingly jumped in with the coop construction!  Who know how long putting the roof on would have taken with our their expertise and tools!
