Burning a Model – 4/16/2017

My office closed down a small side business. All of the remaining inventory was offered to the employees first to do whatever they want with. One of the things that I picked up was a model of a Chinese building. I know that Danelle likes building these kind of things. So here is the completed model.

While the model is nice, I just don’t need more stuff in the house. Danelle agreed, so the family decided to perform some arson…

All four of us took turns applying accelerant to the fire. In the end, only ashes remained. Talk about good family fun!

Solar Install – 4/14/2017

I finally got around to installing the solar panels at Waterfall. Eric met me out there to supervise the install. I got all of the panels mounted before he showed up. Then it was a matter of organizing the cables based on what we had and plugging it all in, SUCCESS!

It needs to be cleaned up, but I have to go home and order some longer cables first.

Avery Play – 4/7/2017

The Avery Play is an annual tradition going back 68 years. Parent volunteers from the PTO get together and write/direct/act in a play for the kids of the grade school.  Here is a collection of photos from practice leading up to the play. I’ll end with the full play recorded for your viewing pleasure.

Waterfall Batteries

We’re working on a solar system for waterfall so we can be off the grid. Eric came out with me today to install the larger batteries. We had to relocate them since there wasn’t room where the old one was. He brought out the soldering iron to make sure they last.

The batteries are installed and the power is on and working. We’ll have to come back another day and get the solar panels complete… Somebody forgot to bring drill bits 🙁
