Austin's Diamond in the Rough

Today we got Austin a car...
he's only 14...and it's a good thing...

cause it's gonna need a little help!

For a while now, Austin has been talking to Scott about getting a 
classic car and the two of them fixing it up.

And a wonderful one popped up.
A '66 Mustang...

Today we had it hauled to the house.
Hauled because that is the only way we could get it here!

The guy from the wrecker service made it look 
easy peasy....

And just like that it was loaded up and ready to go.

And then it was home.

They have a lot of work ahead of them, but,
I think it is going to be a great project for the two of them.

And Austin can't wait to see how their project
turns out.

The only problem with this new little project is that we have 
now run out of garage space!  Scott's truck moved upstairs and the 
Mustang now lives downstairs with the 'Vette.
Someone had to move outside.
And with winter coming,  Scott was gracious and let me
stay in the garage.

We may have another project pop up before this is all said and done.
It will be in the form of another garage out in the back yard!

We'll keep you up to date with their progress.
Hopefully they will have it running and ready to go
by the time he turns 16!

Grandparents Day 2013

Today we celebrated Grandparent's Day
at Jackson's school.

Mama and Papa came over and had lunch with Jackson...
Austin is too big for Grandparent lunch...I guess they think that 
High School kids don't want to have lunch with their Grandparent's.

After lunch we headed back to their classroom and listened to a
special song they learned about how special our Grandparents are and then
they sang us their Months of the Year song and also they sang a song
where they have learned to count to 10 in Spanish.

After the performance they had a special gift for their Grandparents 
with a sweet poem and their hand prints on it.

This was a cute little poster they had hanging outside their door 
about all of the fun things they do with their Grandparents.

Today was lots of fun and we were so happy that 
Mama and Papa could come and share this special
day with Jackson.  We sure missed Nana and Grandpa being here...
