A Plumbing We Wil Go…

IMG_1905

Last week we took advantage of the dry, HOT, weather and did a little dirt work at our new home-place.  We spread out the dirt, completed our circle drive around our house, did some mowing…and since we weren’t tired yet, we rented a trencher and laid pipe for 2 outdoor faucets.  Don joked that next time we would just let all the kids dig the trench and he could save that money.  We quickly added pay for the labor, and realized it would still be cheaper to rent the trencher…and simply hire the kids to do the work!

Don recently bought some gardening equipment for the kids, so the big boys could help chopping beans.  They put them to good use filling the trench back up.  We are thankful for hard working kids who jump right in, no matter the task! (With no complaining either!) :)

One of the best things parents can teach their kids is the value of hard work.  No matter what their size or what the skill is to be learned, they will glean lifelong lessons and learn to appreciate a job well done. Little ones love to feel just as needed as their big brothers and sisters and everyone has a valued place in the family!

Even a child is known by his doings, whether his work be pure, and whether it be right.
Proverbs 20:11

Another job well done…time for baths, Bible time, and bed!

This wasn’t the end of the work adventure for the big boys last week!  They also helped their Daddy move a pivot and helped their momma sew grass seed and water our “dirt” yard.  I think they had rather work for daddy though…he pays them! :)
