Vacation, or Not

I decided the kids needed to do something productive today besides play Minecraft. So, we started the day with sucking up six huge bags of leaves from the front yard. Noah helped for about 5 seconds. Ben helped for a few minutes and then said his muscles hurt.
Whatever.  So I put them on garage duty.  The other day it was wicked windy and we'd open the garage for 2 minutes and about 100 leaves came in.  They actually did a pretty decent job on the garage.  Although, I had to do a final sweep.

Now we are all ready to decorate for Christmas! David likes to help, so we are going to get the inside and outside done this weekend.  I can't wait.  A little Christmas cheer is just what we need!

That's awesome that you put them to work! You and David are such great parents.

Thinking of you all, and David's Mom, praying everything goes well. Certainly, even in the midst of trials, there is so much to be thankful for.

Happy Thanksgiving.
Love, Linda

Yeah the garage looks spotless. Good team effort. Tell Ben that with all his super powers he should not have sore muscles. He should have just taken one big va cuuming beathe and had all those nasty leaves gathered in one whoosh...
But, good job orchestrating the whole endeavor.
