We're celebrating the one-year anniversary of Nicholas' Construction Day with a very special #Duckumentary!
For his wish from Make-A-Wish, Nicholas wanted to be a construction worker for the day... and EDA helped make that dream a reality! The generosity from our partners and donors helped EDA transform our very own backyard into a customized construction site and digging experience for Nicholas and his family. For the one-year anniversary of this event, we reached out to Nicholas for a very special #Duckumentary interview.
Nicholas, how are you doing? Can we have an update on how things have been?
I'm doing great! I am in Pre-K and I love school. We just moved to a new house, and my brother and I got bunk beds. I lost two teeth and the tooth fairy visited me!
What was your favorite part of “Nicholas’ Construction Day”?
My favorite part of Nicholas' Construction Day was riding on the dump truck and the digger... and when I got to work on the crane and see that big box come off the roof... also eating that big cupcake.
What was the biggest surprise?
How are your tools holding up?
Good. I still use them all the time. My favorite tool is a hammer because I like to nail holes into the wall.
Have you worked on any big projects recently?
Yes! I built the new bunk beds last week and I got to help paint my new room.
