The weather today was a sunny, 62 degrees F, with no wind. It was the perfect day to burn a pile of brush so we spent the day doing some outdoor spring cleaning. Ben helped rake and pick up sticks using his own little yellow rake and orange wheelbarrow. He far exceeded our expectations! We thought we had purchased toys for him to pretend with, but he really rolled up his sleeves! We were so impressed by his determination and the length of time he put in working right along side of us! He thought it was fun. For example; as we loaded pine cones in the wheelbarrow Ben would cheerfully say "my turn", and drop in what he had picked up. He worked hard and then napped hard!
