A Tradition Continues


20140419-172752.jpgFrom the time they were ten or so each one of our kids began receiving regular gifts of Craftsman tools. By the time they were on their own they had a full complement of household tools and the skill to use them. Today we gifted Riley with a toolbox and a few basic tools. On Monday she plans to use some of them to repair the bunk bed ladder that Peyton uses to climb up to her top bunk. Of course Grandpop and Peyton will be supervising the repair.
