This past weekend Dad went up to Pine River to meet with the inspector. Everything went smooth and things are ready to roll. We could not be more thankful for the amazing family we have that was by Dad’s side all weekend. Dad had no intentions on actually starting the excavating this weekend or us girls would have made our way up to help; and Grant would say “Help Karm? You mean watch? I’d love to see you drive a CAT… Bet it would be even more funny than you driving a stick. We are so lucky that they had a CAT all ready to go to smooth out the land. Grant and Dad made a big mess several years back when they transformed the land into a BMX bike track. We are so thankful that Marion had both the knowledge and heart to excavate the land to make Grant’s Place possible. To top it all off Gloria was able to document the entire process for us; perks of having photographers in the family.
I know that Grant loves watching me learn so much about his love of building. I can hear him asking me, “Do you even know what excavating is?” My reply, “I do now, Buddy; I do now”.
