Caleb cut beans for almost 3 hours today. With his mama. At the kitchen counter. The boy loves doing meaningful work. He was literally happier than I’ve seen him in a long time. He thrives on making a valued contribution. It was a delight to hang out with him.
Audrey and Rylee owned the tomato situation last night. 35 pounds done in just a couple hours thanks to the fantabulous teamwork that took place. Truly some of our best family times are spent in the kitchen together.
I can barely move at this point but we’ve had a great time canning so far. I didn’t realize how tired I was or how pregnant I am until I broke down sobbing over a chicken nugget at the dinner table last night!
Many hands may make light work. They also make a mess. And memories too…
