Little Helpers

We have company this weekend. Two little folks. Jodi dropped the kids off Friday about noon and then she left to meet up with Jeremy so they could go up to north Georgia for a couples' retreat weekend with their Sunday School group. They have wonderful weather for it and they are looking forward to relaxation and rejuvination. But at Che Nanny and Grandpa's there's lots of work to be done.

First they had to work on the John Deere. Lucky Grandpa -- two mechanics are better than one. Emery had to "fiss" something on the trailer hitch.

Since we aren't buried in snow like so much of the country, we have leaves that needed to be raked.

And, of course, Grandpa needed help rinsing and refilling the bird bath. I don't know how he manages to get all this stuff when he doesn't have all this help!

But all their hard work earned them a ride in the wheelbarrow and they liked that quite a bit!

All that child labor and fresh air can be draining, though. So all this activity was followed by a 3-hour (!) nap for Emery. Savannah found her own way to "unwind"...
