|Felicity helps her Grandpa measure the router blade.|
Felicity helped with holding the wood steady and removing and replacing the c-clamps. And then, like most 9 year olds, decided that it was noisy and wanted to go inside for icecream. Cause Grandpa always has icecream. We made her earn it first though.
We moved to the porch after the first run. We were all covered in sawdust by the end. But, the grooves were cut, so I guess you can say we're groovy. Bad DUM DUM. So, now we have the shells done, Felicity held it together to show off.

Mom pointed out they used to do that years and years ago, the unmarried adult would live with and help whomever needed it)
