On Saturday, we all got to work.
Leeli wasn't feeling terrific, but she made short work of organizing several of our closets and cupboards. It was a little shocking to discover how many products were past their expiration date.
Morning Boy had his first driving lesson
The rest of us sweated it out in the yard.
What we thought would be a quick 20 minute team effort turned into a three hour tour. No one complained.
I guess I shouldn't have been surprised that there were almost tears when we told everyone they could stop. The little working boy admitted that he liked it when we ALL worked together. It was as good as having a party--he didn't want it to end.
We know someone else like that... he's living the dream:
From the very beginning, the Lord commanded Adam to till the earth and have dominion over the beasts of the field, to eat his bread by the sweat of his brow. I have always been interested in how often … Teaching children the joy of honest labor is one of the greatest of all gifts you can bestow upon them.”
-L. Tom Perry
Work builds and refines character, creates beauty, and is the instrument of our service to one another and to God.

but we recognize that
Hard work brings happiness to our family life.
