Day 162 - Family Chores
This photo from about 2008 cracks me up. Scott and Don had crawled into a tiny space, knocked through the wall of our pantry. They were investigating the repairs on some pipes and having such a great time, they invited me in. (I did) Some of my favorite memories are the times our family of 4 worked together on some chore/project. I'm sure we had some grumbles and whining, but there were always moments of slaphappy laughter.. after we'd been working (or failing) at something for a while.
