When people find out that we have 6 children and that 4 of those are boys and 3 of those 4 boys are teenage boys, we often get a wide range of comments. Most of them are not very honoring to my boys. Yes, boys have lots of energy and because of that they eat …. a lot. But all that eating is for a purpose. Its building really strong bodies. Bodies that are used to bless their family and others around the community.
Bodies that can dig huge holes like this…
…in order to help find the pipe that has busted under ground. Bodies that are strong enough (and willing enough) to work on this project after putting in a long day working for someone else.
After several house the pipe was found.
Not to be left out of the fun my pre teens filled back in the holes.
Second pipe that busted this one was much easier to find.
Third busted pipe…again easier to find than the first. But more difficult to fix as we found out this morning when our side yard was flooded.
It wasn’t all work and no play. Benjamin “wallowed like a pig” (his words not mine) and the others had a short lived mud fight.
We all took advantage of the opportunity to learn how to plug a pipe that seems to not go anywhere.
