Thanks to my friend Tiffany Lantz, Porter got a job at Schnepf Farms and he started today! Yay Porter. He had a great first day workin at his very first job ever!
This video came out a little while ago but I love it so much. David Archuleta and James the Mormon capture perfectly the joy that comes from hard work.
Evelyn got her workin done last night singing at the carnival. It’s so cool that kids can be so independent at such a young age. Valuing hard work is a trait they get from their dad who grew up learning to work hard as an Idaho potato farmer. He has continued to set an example of hard work as he gets up every morning even on the hardest days and puts in a full day of work.
I saw more hard workin today as Emma Fisher and her awesome brothers worked so hard to help me with a building cleaning assignment at our church building this morning. Thank you to all the members of our ward who came to make it so quick. What fun we had! I truly find joy in work and these kids have learned that secret too.
Amos was feeling well enough to do a little yard work today. He and all the kids helped clean out the shed and take old furniture and bikes to Goodwill. I love having the junk gone.
My kids did some service for our friends the Pettitts by babysitting Annabella today. It was more fun than work because she is adorable and hilarious. She loves copying everything we say.
After the work, Evelyn and I got to go to Maili’s bridal shower. We can’t wait for this cute hard-workin girl to be part of the family next week.
