GiGi’s porch has been falling apart over the past few years, and after some consideration, she decided to have it taken down.
Dad tackled the project one weekend by himself (the others were out of town). I love to watch Dad’s engineer mind work. He thinks through the ramifications and goes from there. The porch was attached to the house which made it more complicated. Everything came down safely. Joshua helped Dad a little in the beginning process. I enjoyed seeing Grandpa / Grandson working together. Sure, it would have been easier for Dad without Joshua, but Dad sees the value of working with boys and giving them purpose. My brothers are great examples of that. Dad involved in them in work projects when they were little, and now as adults, they tackle all kinds of home improvements projects. Because they know it’s possible!
It’s amazing how open GiGi’s back porch now feels. I’ll do a separate post on the dumpster process and the final “product.”

he shall stand before kings;
he shall not stand before mean men.”
