While Dan and I are busy with the van build, the girls are creating daily checklists for themselves to make sure all their schooling gets completed. Language arts, math, ancient history, art and exercise. Those are their current five subjects. So when we mentioned to the girls that we needed to run to Home Depot in the morning, they quickly put their shoes on and mentioned something about getting to check exercise off their lists. Once we go to the store, the exercise comment made much more sense to me. Sorry contractor dudes in the store, running on polished concrete floors was their PE class today.
The real reason for our visit was to pick up 1.5 inch EPS foam board, a foam board adhesive that has a better VOC rating and some Torx driver bits.
Back at the van, I was in charge of measuring and cutting the foam board, while Dan shimmied the pieces in place and glued them down.
The kids are really into helping today, even in the 91 degree heat that did a number on us. Thanks for making tuna quesadillas for us for lunch today, Ava!
Luka was really into measuring, cutting and delivering his cut pieces to his proud daddy.
This totally counts as math class today.
This insulation thing is slower going today than expected. It’s going to be at least a two day project. It is what it is.
In addition to helping out, Mila grabbed my camera a little today and look at this. I exist! Hello there, readers 🙂
Measuring and bending foam board.
And I gave Luka the box cutters and no one got hurt. Phew.
Sometimes it’s tough waiting for your turn with dangerous tools but this little guy did alright today.
That’s all for today. I got a bit sick today so it took a chunk out of our work day. Crossing our fingers that we get more or all of this insulation done tomorrow. For those of you interested, we put together a van build sheet of all the things we have bought for the build so far.
Here’s Dan’s video of day 3 of our Sprinter build.
Thanks for following along,
