Fences Go Up, Barriers Come Down 4/14/07

Joseph decided Dad needed a new project this week to help beautify the back yard. (Joseph loves it out there, Spending time almost everyday enjoying nature). He convinced us we needed to cover the old wood fence with vinyl lattice work. (a small portion had been done a few years ago). We got 'er done! Joseph supervised most of the work and was a really valuable assistant. It's amazing what an interested third party with common sense and good judgement can add to a DIY project.

Joseph's great friend Bryant Smith, Matt's brother (both our second son's) got married on Friday. His new wife Becky is wonderful and it was a great cause of celebration. Joseph enjoyed attending the reception with friends (we were there also). Bryant and Matt spent hundreds of hours with Joseph when he was recovering in the hospital. They been pretty constant since as well. We are grateful for terrific friends.

Joseph invested in a couple of new portable ramps this week. He found them on the internet. Made of aircraft grade aluminum the are lightweight and will carry a 700 lb load. One of his frustrations is not being able to visit anyone else in their homes. This will help that a great deal. Pretty cool huh!
