|Our small seasonal creek in flood|
One of the requirements for us as a family was to gather as much firewood as we could for our stove. I have mentioned before we only have a wood burning stove for cooking.
As the rain and wind was predicted for quite some days we had 'all hands on deck' gathering the wood. Of course you do realise this was done while it was already raining of course so we had extra mud and wet clothes and boots to add to the washing to be dried inside....picture the Chinese laundry look.
Once we had a good lot of wood in the garage for quite some days the younger children came inside to get warm and cleaned up.
Where were they you may ask. Well it is fairly obvious, and I should have realised because it is not an uncommon thing for our children to do this while it is cold and raining.
They had been down swimming in the dam!!! So now we have sodden boots that take days to dry and very wet and cold boys.
I couldn't help take this photo .
I was thrilled to see those boys of ours enjoying the time together and building brotherly love that will sustain them in the years to come. I am blessed and thankful for these days of having our children love and care for each other.
Children are always a blessing and I am blessed by each and everyone of them!!
Blessings to you and your homes,
