|Can you see it raked in the leaves?|
The rakers (free job) were due at 3:45 but came at 4:30. The eighth and sixth grader complained, ran, chased, argued, fought and raked little. At 4:45 the eighth grade girl demanded to be taken home because if she did not take her home she would get and F in Science and it would be all her mother's fault. Finally, I asked sweetly how long she had known she had the project. Six weeks....hmmm
Then, the sixth grade boy joyfully announced he had made an elephant. The mother argued. I told him to please not mess it up so I could take a picture of it. He was so pleased when I took the picture. After they left, I realized the child thought I would take his picture. I will next time he rakes.
My yard has huge lumps of leaves and tiny piles of leaves...sigh. And, six inches of grass for four months killed some of the grass, lots of the grass.
Probably 1/10 of the yard is done!
Can you see the elephant? Do you ever get help that is exhausting and no help in the end?
