A Hard Days Work

Last Saturday we worked together as a family to lay sod in our backyard. We could've paid someone to do it, but we wanted our kids to know all the hard work it takes and that as a family we can do it together. The boys worked SO hard. We started at 11:00 AM.

We shoveled a ton of dirt.

After a few hours, it was finally time to lay the sod. I brought the sod to him, he cut it if needed and pieced it together.
