I hope you all had a great Memorial Day weekend. Some men fought long and hard and gave their lives for our freedom. I am so thankful that we can worship and live in freedom.
Yesterday, we got out and got busy in our garage and sheds, but I recognize that the process will take some time. So yesterday, Carpenter and I talked about some projects that need to be done. It's not too much for eight people to do, so the kids and I are going to make the effort to finish these projects this week. It will actually be in three days. Carpenter wants to take Friday off from work if possible to get things headed in the direction of our ministry opportunity.
But before we can move and work on this opportunity that has presented itself, things at home need to be shored up. Organization needs to take place and things need to be taken care of. Attitudes need to be adjusted and kids need to be prepared to work as a team.
So this week, we have to:
Clean out the old fort and repair the roof so that we can store metal in it for the scrap yard.
Clean out the garden shed, so that we can put the lawn mowers in there with the tiller and other gardening stuff.
Finish cleaning out the garage and the woodshed. Move the mower and the tiller out of the garage so that we can use the garage for vehicles again.
So I guess I figure we can do one portion each day. We'll also have to work in the garden faithfully, dentist appointments, a trip to the park with other moms, and babysitting one day this week. Pool is our incentive - Daddy gave the go-ahead for not one trip on Fridays, but several throughout the week. :) Yay!!!!
So it will be an incentive to get our work done in the morning.
Keep pressing on.
