O send out thy light and thy truth: let them lead me; let them bring me unto thy holy hill, and to thy tabernacles. Psalms 43:3

And as all have not faith, seek ye diligently and teach one another words of wisdom; yea, seek ye out of the best books words of wisdom; seek learning, even by study and also by faith. D&C 88:118

New Lights!

Our house had some very ugly impractical lighting when we bought it. After the fluorescent tube lights died, we ripped out the boxes and started to replace the lights in the kitchen. The pendant lights above the peninsula has take a while to get done but finally it is finished! All the kids did a little bit, but most of the work was done by B and Tiger.

After clearing the counter and taping everything, B drilled a hole in the ceiling.

In order to move the wiring, several holes needed to be drilled in the 2x6s. Tiger worked on that. The drill bit was inferior quality and wasn’t working right, so they used a ratchet to drill it! July  2013 074    

After drilling holes, they fished the line through the holes with the help of some rare earth magnets and string. B guided Tiger’s blind hand to connect the washer on the end of the rope to the magnet he was holding…July  2013 079

Lights installed, happy kids.
