Working for a Living
The twins have been staying in the country the last 5 days. They were helping Uncle Carey clear hedge trees from his fence-line. And shooting turtles around his pond. Driving the tractor, running the chain saw, and working up a sweat. Whew! This type of manual labor was a good experience for them, and I wondered what they would say when I picked them up yesterday. They talked all the way home! They benefitted from being away from their routine and being around their younger cousins. Plus they tried Asian food, enjoyed "doughnut mass," and kept up during Ultimate Frisbee with the college/seminarian crowd.
