Ok, so its time to crack on and tell you more about whats going on here at the Brewster. I think i need to fast forward and take a couple of posts to bring you up to date so that i can tell you about everything thats happening as and when it happens like i’d always wanted to do. What i’ll do from now is probably jump back in time with a post every now and again

 

Time for some pics to start with (in no particular order) from February and March 2007 when we first arrived

Us on our “thrones” as people said when we appeared in one of the 2 State daily newspapers

Our first snowfall 2 days after we arrived. You don’t get snow in England so to find 12″ of it outside was interesting Photobucket

The snow has enabled us to have a little bit of fun Photobucket

Some people go ice fishing where they get out onto the lake, drill a hole in it and then put a line down into the water. Then they sit in a hut and wait for the little red flag to pop up

In May just 12 weeks after we got here, we won an award from the State of Maine and Maine Tourism Assoc for all the work we’d done since we got to Maine. It was a very nice surprise Photobucket

In June once all the snow had gone it was time to get on with repairing the house. The 2 people that we gave that task to were Elijah and Ethan. They are great workmen both with their skills and their work ethic. In September Elijah left the area to take his wife and children to Missouri as they were going to be training to become missionairies over the next 2 years and so we then had their father Eric carry on the good work here with Ethan

These pictures are how the house looked in June once the paintwork had all been scraped and powerwashed prior to priming and brush painting
