Do NOT Copy

Raking the swamp

Well, we did some cleanup today. Our equipment included a rake, lawn bags, gloves, and two hockey sticks. Why the rake and hockey sticks? We were trying to reach the bottles floating out of reach. I still couldn't get it all though. The rake wasn't long enough. Maybe we should get some hip wadders or something.



Here they are, hard at work. After I picked TBO from baseball, we did our cleanup while waiting for Cheesehead to get done working. At first they didn't want to do any cleanup, but once we started it was hard to get Peanut to stop.

We were going to meet at TBO's school when Cheesehead was done working, but TBO had to go to the bathroom so we finished a little earlier than planned and then went to Cheesehead's work. I am proud of all their hard work. They didn't even complain once we started working. We spent about 45 minutes cleaning up and they claimed it seemed like about 10 minutes. The best part is that they want to go and do more cleanup on Wednesday. I guess the lesson got through. When we were finished we had half of a 45 gallon lawn and leaf bag full of trash. I left our supplies in the van for our next mission.

For a special treat we brought them to Culver's for dinner. I wanted to thank them for helping to save the earth. It really wasn't in the budget, but I'm sure I'll figure out a way to make it work.

Thank you for stopping by. Please leave me a message and a backlink. I'd love to hear your thoughts!
