Yesterday we spent the day in Apex with the "Other Woertmans", building a fence along the street side of their backyard. Kate stayed at the house to watch the kids while John and Freddy went to Lowe's to pick up materials. (Candy, Jordan, and Caroline were out selling popcorn for Boyscouts so they missed out on the action!)
Woertman Brother's Construction got to work
I was the "aesthetics coordinator"
Then I passed along the duties to Heather
Uncle John put Ashton to work.
Jessica was the babysitter who watched Ricky, but came out to visit occasionally.
Here is Freddy putting on the last board! YAY!!!
And the finished product from the across-the-street view.
During the last few weeks of pregnancy, Kate listened to Brad Paisley's new song "Then". She didn't just listen to it a few times, she obsessively played the song on repeat, learned every word, and sung it at the top of her lungs while driving. Then one day a few weeks after Kaylee was born, Kate was driving with Kaylee by themselves. Kaylee began to cry...then scream. It didn't matter how much Kate reassured her, pulled over to make sure something wasn't wrong, or attempted to hold the pacifier in place with one arm backwards while driving. It finally occurred to Kate that maybe Kaylee wants mommy to sing to her (although no one else would want this!). So Kate put track #4 on and began to sing. Kaylee immediately calmed down. Low and behold, it's not even mommy's singing that Kaylee likes! It's Brad's!
