All In A Days Work

Spring has definitely arrived in Georgia!  Along with the beautiful signs of God's handiwork, comes the much anticipated yard work.  We have a good sized yard, so that also means we have a good amount of yard work to tackle every Saturday.
First of the list.....Spring cleaning and getting the beds ready for the season.
Friday morning, we had a load of pine straw delivered to split with our next door neighbor.
Saturday morning, bright and early our boys were up and outside raking leaves left behind from the fall.
Leaves left behind from our hardworking boys, were blown into a pile.
By this time, all the kids had made it outside.
Time for the bales!
We can always count on Andrew
Our tiny bale mover and her BOSS!
Taking a little break before the real work began!
Spreading the pine straw was a lot of work
Lucky for us, we have a lot of workers
And just to show that our kids also enjoyed the day.....

"Yet we urge you, brothers and sisters, to do so more and more, and to make it your ambition to lead a quiet life:  You should mind your own business and work with your hands, just as we told you, so that your daily life may win the respect of outsiders and so that you will not be dependent on anybody."
1Thessalonians 4:11-12
Gratitude Journal
For the beauty and renewal of Spring
For a clear bedroom floor, with all the piles of clothes boxed up for a trip to Goodwill
For Luke's 12 hours of sleep last night, meaning Mommy also slept for 8 hours!
