PIGGY PILE

On Dad.  That's four bodies piled high on Steve...with a couple beanbags as fillers.  It feels good to laugh.  I know that is what Ben would want.  We have our cute nephew Roger here for the weekend.  This soon-to-be missionary is a MACHINE.  I don't think I have ever met anyone his age with the work ethic that he has.  He's helped Steve redo all of our flower gardens in the front yard, including mulching.  He's helped tape and paint the girl's room and helped Steve clear some land out back.  Then they made a rock wall to line some of the yard.  It looks beautiful.  On top of all that, he was the motivating help in getting Kaleb to clean his room. (that's no easy task) We have been so lucky to have him here.  (even though his 5 yr.old little brother Mason has been pacing the floors at home wondering when he will be returning.)  Thank you Roger!!!
