I looked at your photos and can almost imagine your grown up son one day in the future saying my mom was always there for me and even built the play structure alone for me.
You doing that Is an act of love and pretty symbolic of your dedication to Telset.

Thanks everyone! I'm so proud of myself. My hands and upper body are KILLING me...but so worth it.
Teslet had a hard time coming home but as we walked into the house I told him that I needed him to test some stuff out for me. He was so happy checking everything out. He looked at the roof and said, "wow that rough looks hard." I told him it was pretty hard to build it. He says, "yeah, you could have broken your body making it."
