Day 9: Hard Work

Day 9:  Hard Work

Today I am thankful for hard work…..crazy!!!! I just spent the day with my children (and some other kids form church) at our new church site raking leaves in the playground. This may sound like a smallish job, but I assure you it was not!!! We raked for 4 hours, and bagged 16 construction site type trash bags full of leaves plus picked up all the sticks and branches!!!!!! They were paid with marshmallows!!!! They loved it!! Well, until about 1:30, then they were done!! Not even a marshmallow could get them to do anything else!!!!! But it is a joy to work alongside my children. They have been trained to obey and not to fuss, so every time the play break (we took one after we finished a pile of leaves) was over they happily came back for more hard work!!!!!  It was hard work to train them, but I am so glad I took the time to do it!! It is so worth the effort!!!=)
