May everyone’s bellies and pocketbooks be this happy.

8. Chickadee Homestead

My mama heart is bursting with pride tonight. ???? We moved a HUGE pile of wood chips into our garden today. And these two girls were right there along side us, working all day in the heat (hence their swim suits ????). In fact, they were asking to go work on it after we took a lunch break! Everything in that wagon, was put there by these two little ones, and that’s just scratching the surface of the work they put in today.???????? I couldn’t be more proud of their good attitudes and determination. Moments like these help me know I’m not totally screwing up this mothering thing. Instilling good work ethic in our children is a big priority for us. And we want them take ownership of this family garden ???? just as much as we do as their parents. And today that was definitely the case. I just totally love that ???? Oh and I just have to say…no ‘Pokemon’ were needed to enjoy some good healthy fun family activity outdoors ????????????
