Big Helpers

What a beautiful, productive day we've had. You can't beat this weather we've been having this spring. It's actually spring like weather. Usually it's 100 degrees out by June and today was in the 70's with a nice breeze. The kids have been begging to go outside right after breakfast so out we go and are usually out there until lunch. They have a fun time playing (have I mentioned how nice it is to have two kids that play well together?). Today I asked if they wanted to help me rake up grass clippings and they enthusiastically said Yes! I ran out of mulch for the garden and have resorted to using dried grass clippings from the lawn mowing yesterday. We let the lawn go a little too long between mowings and it left several large piles around the yard. So I raked and the kids hauled the cart around depositing clipping into it. They got to help me put the clippings around the baby corn. They were big helpers and I'm proud of them. They, of course, wanted to know what they would get for helping to which I replied with a big kiss on the forehead. I wonder if they'll help me again in the future.
