Hard Work

There is a lot going on at the house. Finishing the little odds and ends in the house as well as putting both front and back yards in. Corbin loves to be outside and he loves to help too. I have noticed though at 4 years old he says "I'm exhausted" pretty quick after starting to help. This particular day though Corbin really dug in and helped in a big way. He helped until he was actually dripping sweat and rosy cheeked (sorry for the visual but I was proud.) I feel strongly about raising a hard worker with a good work ethic and this day gave me some hope for that.

Here is Grandpa and him digging and filling trenches for the watering system for the yard.

Corbin helped until the trenches were all filled in. He is learning a lot of skills at the same time and hopefully will keep these skills with him as he gets older.
Most everything worth having has to be worked for and so it is with wisdom. We don’t gain knowledge and understanding by sitting idle. Solomon understood the value of hard work and made it a major theme of the Proverbs.

“He that gathereth in summer is a wise son: but he that sleepeth in harvest is a son that causeth shame.” (Proverbs 10:5)

“Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise:” (Proverbs 6:6)
