#1 Project Log 10/27 - 11/02

I have been enjoying the Learning Logs we have been doing for My Tech.  I love the fact that it keeps track of all the good we do.  I find myself overwhelmed with projects and wanting to instantly complete ten different projects at once.  Because of this I have decided to keep a project log.  It may die down because I do not have the same deadline as I have with My Tech.  But I think it will help me right now.


  • Hauled cement blocks out of the neighbors yard.
  • Hauled our new industrial swing set out of the neighbors yard.
  • Figured out layout of the new swing set, found it online
  • Made a new cinder block stand for the goat
  • taught the dogs to walk on a drag
  • Took the dogs to Wetland park
  • Set a new fish tank
  • Got new wood for outdoor shutters
