See, Max and Bojan are extremely close. They claim to be biological. LOL. Being this close is both good and bad. They were so close, that they wanted no one else "in." Can you see where this is going? So, for months we've been dealing with our older teen boys not quite accepting their newest younger brother...Logan. Though Logan was trying and trying. This was hard as well b/c he was trying by being annoying. Yes, he was. He'd throw stuff at them. He was trying to get their attention but it just made things worse.
Well, earlier this week, Max and Bojan were going to build me a patio set. They complained a lot about me making Logan help them. "he'll get in the way mom." "We don't want him to help." " We can do it much faster by ourselves." Yes, I heard it all but I stuck to my guns.
Notice, just these two to start out with?
One of the benches. It is extremely heavy. No, it's not crooked. It's the unlevel ground.
Max wanted to make a very high back b/c he hates sitting in chairs, leaning back and your neck falls over the edge. Good point he had. Everyone can lean back in this one. Look at the size of the bolts he put in that thing.
They came up with the saying for the picture taking. Working buddies. All still smiling after working together all afternoon.
They did it together. All 3 of them. NO fighting. NO disagreements. Cooperation all around. Trust me, I was stunned.
A closer view on some faces here. Squinting b/c sun is bright as you can see.
Starting the second bench. Here's where having a workshop would come in handy. But, they make do and that's good too.
