After we got everything in the house it was time to pick up on the chores with two additional helpers. Eggs were collected, chickens were let out of the run, and were fed a little scratch. After that, since it was a nice day with only a moderate wind, we decided to take a walk to the garden. If we're going to the garden we need to have our boots on. Papa has the big, black rubber boots. The ladies' boots are all little more colorful.

|Of course if there's digging to be done, the birds are all in.|
|It seems the birds are all in with Aunt M, ready or not!|
Heaven is the more cautious of the two and, since it had been awhile, was initially very concerned about the chickens being right there with her. Fortunately, that didn't last very long. Harmony, the younger, is much more likely to be found at Grandma's side so when Grandma went in, she went too. Heaven, the older, loves to work with Papa and work she did!
|There were weeds to haul to the compost pile, so off she went, and the wheelbarrow comes back empty.|

|Heaven offers a worm in exchange for the help.|
We had supper and baths, and are now playing quietly (mostly) until bedtime. This will be the first time girls have stayed overnight alone with Grandma and Papa, so we're not sure quite what to expect.
What fun! And more to come tomorrow and Sunday! We are blessed!
