I realize today was supposed to be a break of our labors but for us it was some nice time to get some yard work completed.
The kids played and helped. In fact they came marching down the stairs chanting 'yard work! yard work!' when Eric told them we were going out to do stuff.
The enthusiasm quickly waned but they were troopers and did help most of the day. Brush was burnt, the apple tree was pruned and my birdhouse finally got hung.
It was a nice productive day. All spent together as a family.
