Better Than Video Games

Our kids are lucky to have grandparents who live nearby. Well, kind of lucky. Well, maybe lucky isn't the right adjective. They spend a lot of time serving as conscripted labor on whatever the current farm project is.

Here's our son and his grandpa, working to clean up the foundation of an old corn crib they took down earlier this summer. I won't show you all the photos of grandpa working and son watching grandpa work.

A lot of my homeschool mom friends would give almost anything to have opportunities like this for their sons. Better than a summer full of video games.

I think skidsteer driving and video games have some similarities. But you don't get nearly as dirty playing video games...

We are blessed to live where we do. We are blessed to have parents/grandparents still healthy and directing mini chain-gangs. We are blessed.

  1. Love the 'chain-gang' *winks*! My 5 year old granddaughter asked her Daddy if they could wash dishes together because it was such fun - they had just gotten a new dishwasher. And, yes - they washed all the dishes by hand that night =) and they did have a lot of fun!
