Bird house

At the beginning of March, I volunteered to help Emily's class build bird houses with the Bremer County Conservationist.  It was made of pre-cut, pre-drilled pine boards that just needed to be nailed together.  Emily only hit my finger once (and I sported a blood blister for quite a while).  The house is specifically designed for a House Wren.

At home, I supervised Emily putting a coat of primer on the outside.  I forgot how much of a learning curve painting is!

I asked Emily repeatedly if she wanted to paint anything special on it or a different color, but she was happy with just white.  Today (4/13/13), Austin finally hung it up on a tree in the backyard.  We'll see what happens!
