Okay, now I'm seeing the awesome that is having a pile of kids.
They are (finally) big enough to work!
Please pardon all these pics off my cell phone. I'm kicking myself for not getting out my camera instead. Sigh.
After the jumping we started filling the wheelbarrow and dumping it in the truck so we could get rid of the mountain of leaves.
We had at least 3 truckloads!
This may be one of my most favorite parenting moments yet. We got to teach the kids how to work together, we had fun and I swear I was laughing constantly.
We took a break after a bit and had some hot cocoa. Then, Buddy asked if he could finish working on some leaf piles. I was shocked but said yes and he went out and spent about a half hour filling the wheelbarrow and dumping it in our leaf pile.
The next day he and Xander went out and finished all the work. That was pretty awesome.
Yep, having a bunch of kids is going to rock. My yard will be beautiful! Can't wait until we can teach them how to paint and remodel interiors of homes...
