Kendall's First Engineering Job

Kendall's first engineering job turned out to be a great success. He didn't get paid for it, but I think he had fun and Avri and Talmage and even Mercedes will be able to enjoy it for years to come.
This is the sandbox that he made for Avri's birthday. Unfortunately, it still doesn't have any sand in it because we don't have a porch to put it on yet. But he designed and built the entire thing. He made it so that it has seats all the way around (not just on the corners) and he made the seats with the slits in them so that the sand can fall back into the sandbox instead of outside of the sandbox. We'll have to let you all know if the idea works as well as we are hoping. Avri was very excited about it once she figured out what it was. She even got into it with her sand toys and pretended that there was sand. She was building all sorts of things.

That's awesome. Say, if you're living in Peoria, look up the McAllisters. They used to be in my ward back in Columbia, MO and moved to Peoria a long time ago. They are members. Her name is Lois and his name is Dave. Their son Brent was a friend of mine and my sisters. yeah!
