I worked in the Jennings yard again today. When the 2 big boys saw what I was doing--they RAN to get their equipment to help. Some help can be detrimental to progress! I was cleaning out a LONG overdue bed which was full of leaves. As I raked the leaves out, Henry spotted opportunity. Before I knew it, he was flying from the backyard with his excavator, front end loader, bulldozer, and dump truck. He was SO much help---and then he got his rake!
He and Elliot undid---as fast as I could do! The last straw was when he turned over a bag full of leaves that I had just filled. I looked at him with my "stink eye" and told him "THAT WAS NOT FUNNY!"----He cracked up and said, "YES IT WAS!" It's very difficult to keep a stern countenance when we are all having so much fun!
I am exhausted-BUT WHAT FUN!
