Preparing for Winter

A week or so ago, the boys spent the afternoon with Papa and Elley.  They had "lotsa work to do!" So, Papa let them help him gather some firewood to store in the bin next to the house, and Elley snapped these beautiful photos!

I'm sure Carter had a few thoughts on how it was supposed to go.

He told Elley that you had to be "weally stwong" to load wood.

I think Papa was the one who had to be strong.

Thank goodness for all the help!  I think Mom and Dad are ready for the coming cold days now!


  1. Britt....just wanted to take sometime to say Thank you for your blogs, stories and letters. I look forward to them. As a "new" aunt trying to help raise Steelee, I have often felt the way you have on a few subjects. I am glad to know I am not the only one that has great things happen, five minutes later things fall apart and then things I wonder about. Your blogs have helped me, settled me , calmed me,inspired me and made me think about the "real important things". Real important things such as life, health, love and gratefulness. Thanks again......look forward to more!! Steph
