Future Home Owner
He came running over after school calling out, “I’m gonna see Bob!” Then he stopped and asked, “What you doing?” “Cleaning the yard.” “Can I help?” “Sure, I’ll even pay you.” “Yay, I’m gonna make my own money!!” He ran to tell his mom.
And so our five year old neighbor, just a babe in arms when we met a seeming short few months ago, really focused in for his age and packed a couple of lawn bags. When we ran out of bags he ‘helped’ me run the power washer on the house, a job he really liked. That machine is big, loud and it scours off dirt in a hypnotic, satisfying manner. I guided the wand but it is rewarding work that even a five year old ‘gets’. He had to go in for supper but his short stay boosted our moods and made the day.
