The Apprentice

Danya got to help Grandpa Wayne and Daniel lay the new tiles in the entry hall and the kitchen. She was fascinated by all the different tools they used. The tools were on loan courtesy of our friendly neighborhood supply store...A.K.A. our neighbor, Shane.

Wayne has laid a lot of tile over the years since he is the head of maintenance at my old high school. He was installing those tiles so fast, it was a thing of beauty to watch! He made it look so easy. But then Daniel, attempting to lay tile for the first time ever, showed how hard it really is if you aren't experienced at it. Together, though, they made a good team. I'm glad that the girls got to participate, since it's not a typical "girl job". I want them to feel confident and capable at any task.
