Its been too nice to not be outside, so since we were out anyway, I pulled out the rake and got to work cleaning up the yard of last year's remaining leaves. No amount of clean-up is going to make our yard look good, but we still need to take care of it.
The girls jumped right in wanting to help. They are both very good workers, Avery especially puts her head down and gets right to it.
We all thought of a page out of a favorite book we have called God's Wisdom For Little Girls...virtues and fun from Proverbs 31 by Elizabeth George. In it, one of the pages is a girl raking leaves in her yard:
God's Little Girls is...Eager
As "busy as a bee," a real "eager beaver,"
That's how God sees His little weaver.
She's ready, she's set, she can't wait to start-
She always works hard with a song in her heart.
She looks for wool and linen.
She likes to work with her hands.
