Teaching Children to Work Pt 2

Work together as a family, even if it may be faster and easier to do the job ourselves. Talk with our sons and daughters as we work together.”
Strengthening Families: Our Sacred DutyRobert D. Hales
We are teaching the kids different skills this summer.  One skill we taught Katia this week is mowing.  She really did not want to mow.  It was a major battle.  But by the time we convinced her and she had made one round, she was smiling and feeling so happy about what she was accomplishing.  I'm sure we could have mowed in half the time, but the joy on her face was so worth it!

Emma swept the sidewalk.

Delta swept the sidewalk.

I love how she would jump to turn the mower.
