2 Yard Cleanup (1)Jesse was excited to find a slug.

2 Yard Cleanup (2)Oh, the joy of being the youngest cousin! 🙂 Nate said, “I’ll give you $10.00 if you swallow it.

2 Yard Cleanup (5)It became even more tempting when his other cousins – Josiah and Jordan – and his big brother Josh added money to the pot.

2 Yard Cleanup (3)There it goes – dirt and slug.

He said he would do it if someone brought him a glass of water.

2 Yard Cleanup (4)He did it!

2 Yard Cleanup (8)He kept drinking water and saying he needed a toothbrush. 🙂

2 Yard Cleanup (9)But he loved earning $21.00.

2 Yard Cleanup (10)Then he found a garden snake. No! No one is asking him to swallow that.

2 Yard Cleanup (11)His next job was to help Josh finish repairing our stone steps.

2 Yard Cleanup (12)Josh has been trained in hardscaping and has a great skill and eye for it.

2 Yard Cleanup (23)My little garden is looking nice.

2 Yard Cleanup (24)Roy doing the final cleanup in the garage – where we ate lunch – and Ian coming back from mowing our neighbor’s yard. Mowing her yard is his summer job. He went next door to do that after he was finished in our yard.

2 Yard Cleanup (25)Following the yardwork, we left to go to a TFC banquet about two hours away. Following a nice rain – and a rainbow – Jere came over to get a picture. Beautiful!

We are blessed to have a loving, caring family. Thank you everyone.

  1. They did a beautiful job for you! I wish I lived a little closer so I could borrow any one of your helpers to do some weeding in my little back yard!
