Our summer help

"What a help you are to the weak! How you have saved the arm without strength!" Job 26:2

OK. So we're not quite so weak and without strength. However, we are so appreciative of the summer help. Michael is home from college until the end of July. Then he's off to officer training camp with the Air Force! What a worker he is, too. Here's an example of how he's helped, thus far.

Cutting and driving pieces of rebar.

Filling areas with dirt, gravel, and sand.

Helping Eric add cement to the new front step.

Michael, we are too thankful you needed summer work!

Great looking, strong young men to help! That is a blessing! An a Officer in Training too! As the wife of a recently retired officer, I send my thanks and admiration to Michael!

Its such a blessing to have our children willing to help. Our older son and family have done so much for us by helping us move into and get settled in our new place. Sat. morning they came over and helped paint our bedroom, put in our yard solar lights and figure out the complicated watering and drip system. Son reconfigured everything and now things work fine.
We had to leave for a wedding 2 hours away and we left them working. When we came home the house was spic and span, everything put away and ready for us. Great kids and such a blessing to us.

Thanks for the wonderful comments. I'll pass them along to Michael. I did forget to mention that he is not our son. His dad works with Eric. He needed summer work and we needed summer help. A perfect match!!
