What I have enjoyed and how they have earned the name the goof troop is how much my children love life and make everything enjoyable. When we moved to the farm the work crew was entirely the family. We did everything. While in the midst of work the kids made it fun.
We salvaged tires for the raised tire bed gardens.
The kids saw this an opportunity to move the tires while having
fun. It made me queasy watching then...
and it kind of makes me queasy now.
No worries, the kids filled the coolers with water
and would sit in them.
When I went outside to see what they were doing
they told me that they were having
cooler races. Third won the first race,
and Fourth was in the lead for the second race.
I am happy that the children~now all adults had the opportunity to see life and its hardships and also how to thrive while enduring. It hasn't been an easy life but it has been the most amazing one and I love reminiscing about how the kids, when lemons came their way, they made salsa(the highest most bestest achievement ever-in my eyes:).
To my First, Second, Third, and Fourth~and all the sweetie pies you have brought in to the family~thank you. We appreciate so much that when we had to roll up our sleeves and adapt, that you four did as well, and that has made life all the better, because you all did it in a way that brought joy to times that were often filled with struggle.
Dad and I love you so very much and we are thankful for each and every one of you!
