Hired Hands

Hiredhands-2

Our grandchildren Juni and Krew worked as Papaw's hired hands one afternoon this week.

Juni is saving her money to buy another stuffed animal (she already has a HUGE collection) and Krew is saving for another Lego set.

And Papaw and Gramaw just happened to need some help around the cabin, so we hired them for the afternoon.

The first task was planting beans.  Children are great for that...nice and low to the ground!

After the beans were in the ground, they helped Papaw harvest asparagus.

They always like to throw some greens through the fence for a chicken treat!

As Juni says, "I need a wittle bwake"...

All in an afternoon's work for our little...
