My Working Men

These guys have been doing a ton of work to get the garden ready this last week or so. They have been building planters, mucking out the chicken coop, moving carpet and tires and plotting out the garden rows and paths. There is absolutely nothing William likes better than working alongside his dad, and of course Isaac doesn't want to be left out of anything.  They make me smile. 

These rubber boots are the best things ever, definitely a wardrobe staple around here.  They wear them constantly and Isaac's are always backward :).

Yesterday William assured me that he "could work all day and all night and all day and all night." He then started trying to figure out ways that he could continue working outside during the night.  He finally concluded that the best way would just be to pray and ask Heavenly Father to make it light outside at night.  He then gave me a sample prayer that went like this:

"Dear Heavenly Father, thank you for blessing that it could be light outside at night so I can work.  In the name of Jesus Christ amen."

The funny kid always thanks Heavenly Father for blessings as if they had already happened instead of asking for them.  Oh to have the faith of a child...
