It was very fitting and appropriate this week that our last big project with Andrew involved scooping out a swimming pool. Over the years this has become a family tradition every spring, with sometimes multiple pools waiting to be cleaned as Dad's business blasts a couple pools every year.

So Tuesday afternoon we all loaded up and headed to a local small town for 3 hours of scooping and lugging buckets. Ah, these beautiful spring days -- and the fun opportunity to be outside in the sunshine together!!!

Ah, thank the Lord for strong guys to do the lifting!

There's nothing quite like diggin'-in teamwork!!!

"Behold, how good and how pleasant it is
for brethren to dwell together in unity!"
Psalm 113:1

Looks like a lot of hard work. :) But you all got to spend time together as a family and that makes it that much more fun.
