Pitching in and Digging Out

See http://www.bringjosephhome.com/

Joseph is making steady progress and loving the wonderful company he receives.
He keeps busy with excercise, education and extreme kindness from the hospital staff.



Meanwhile on the homefront everyone is pitching in to help pack things up and fix things up. With our nephew, many returned EBM missionaries, and friends of Joseph and the family all helping to begin the fix up of the house for Joseph's return. The garage is coming nicely, with plaster, prep and paint making things look brand new.
The Digging Out commenced in the back yard today. The trench for the foundation of Joseph's new room begins the project. What an amazing amount got accomplished just today!

2) Nephew Eric Nish and EBM miss. Garrett Jacobson attack the garage.
3) The backhow made short work of the frozen soil in preparing for the footings of the new addition. Note the windows in the upstairs bedroom and bathroom that will have to be moved shortly.
