It was another cool, autumn day, and the pour was scheduled for 10. This time, there was a different driver, and he too was pleased with the cookies. Today’s pour was slower. Part of it was due to the fact that there was something a bit different about the concrete mix, so it was harder to work with. It was supposed to be the same as yesterday’s, but it wasn’t. All in all, it came together, andÂ Joseph’s driveway looks awesome! It was great to see the way the guys worked as a team to help their brother.

I continue to be amazed at all of the skills you guys have. You do EVERYTHING!
We are renovating a rent house and my husband has to work SO much that it’s down to my 70 year old Mother and myself. Needless to say I have had to hire a handyman but thankfully he can do everything, Costing me more though than if my husband were off doing it.. I understand the importance of teaching your young men to do all of this themselves. It certainly helps the bottom line.
Joseph – since you guys have managed to get your driveway forms set and cement poured in a timely manner, please, PLEASE come down here and educate the contractors working on the Project 180 streets project in downtown OKC about how to get this stuff done in a timely, efficient manner. It has been three years, and they are killing me!!!
I cannot wait to see the finished project. Thank you for sharing and allowing your sisters to document your days spent remodeling your home!!
We have done this helping my Uncle and it is major work. I was laughing at myself thinking about all the crazy predictments that happened from loosing a load of concrete to the city citing my uncle in the middle of the project for not painting his garage door. Congratulations on a job well done! The guys deserved a well deserved rest after all their hard work.
I echo Johnna’s comment (above) about being amazed at the skills you young men possess! 🙂 But how wonderful that you are using talents and gifts the Lord has given you–combined with lots of hard work–to complete major projects. Thanks for another update, and it’s so exciting to see more progress on Joseph’s house.
Love, Mrs. Patti
