Talk about a determination....

 
Show Caleb a picture on facebook... Caleb has a little free time... Caleb gets to work...  Less than 48 hours later...
 
THE FINISHED PRODUCT!!!  I love it! We all do! Talk about the perfect place to relax!
 
I am not kidding when I say this kid is determined and will not sit idle.  It is very rare that you see him really chilling out... If he has too much time on his hands he gets a project and gets it done.  Or many days you will see him out harvesting produce from the garden... he has put in many hours out there:) 
 
He has been my go to guy this summer.  Truly, there have been jobs around the house that I have wanted to complete... that were hanging over my head...  that I would still be waiting to complete with out Caleb... painting cabinets... painting more cabinets... .organizing basements rooms, making outdoor hanging beds, just to name a few. 
 
I literally showed Caleb the picture of this hanging bed one afternoon... He thought he could do it! He went out to the garage to see what scraps of wood we had and set to work.  Literally, all we had to purchase was a cover for the mattress and the rope to hang it and less than 48 hours later, I was resting in the back yard listening to the millions of cicadas hum all around me.  It has been the go to place to read, hang out, or do school.  We all love it!
 
I am so thankful for Caleb and his good work ethic and determination to get the job done... I am really proud of him!

How awesome! My husband is not great with wood and I am so hoping one of my boys will be! That does look like the perfect place to relax!
