Cody to the Rescue
This is Cody with Charlie. Cody and his mom, Kris, are living in our bunkhouse for the summer and Charlie likes to peek in their front door and watch videos with Cody! They're buds. It seems Charlie likes having next door neighbors and so do we. Last night Cody came knocking on our door wanting to know if I had any work he could do. It took me about 1 second to say YES. This morning we worked 3 hours and we... (drum roll please) tore down the broken chicken run, moved panels along our fence where Riley did her attempt at the high jump, hauled off 2 pick up loads of old and dangerous boards full of nails, as well as some old wire, put up a summer bed in the garden (real bed not garden bed), and cleaned and swept up our basement. Quite a bit for 3 hours. He said he was coming back tomorrow. I am very excited to have such a willing and hardworking young man at my disposal. It is amazing how much more work four hands can do and how much more fun you can have doing it!
