It’s a summer Saturday.
As I write this, my kids are watching Woody Woodpecker. My husband is cutting the grass. I’ve cooked a hot breakfast. Once the yard is done, we have an afternoon of family fun planned.
Just like when I was a kid.
Without realizing it, our family found that old time routine of yard cutting and chores on Saturday morning before playing all afternoon.
And it just feels… right.
Until a few weeks ago, we had a yard guy that came and cut the grass. Between a desire to do a little budget cutting and a need to teach our kids some responsibility, we fired the yard guy. We decided it was time to teach our boys to cut the grass and do yard chores.
Suddenly, everything just fit.
