Photo Story Friday — Helping Daddy
With the arrival of spring comes spring clean-ups. And lots of them, since my husband is a landscaper. Since the ground is still far too spongy after this past weekend’s torrential rains to work on his customer’s yards, my husband was doing some minor cleaning up around home while Shane played outside.
Shane was far too interested in what Daddy was doing to want to play with his toys. Loose sand and dirt on the driveway was painstakingly swept into a pile while Shane watched, ever curious. When my husband disappeared into the garage, and emerged again with a big bucket and shovel, Shane was beyond thrilled…and quickly found a way to join in and “help!”
The pile was spread far and wide. Dirt was carefully shoveled up, only to be dropped a few feet over. The bucket was filled…and dumped…and filled again.
A five minute job took closer to twenty.
And my husband — so patient, so gentle, so sweet — just kept encouraging Shane, cheering him on, thanking him for his help.
They’re going to make quite a team. They already do.
