cleaning the garage  

posted by Michael Piwonka 2:26 PM
While Allie was at a birthday party today, Mason helped me clean up our garage in preparation of putting the house up for sale. He was particularly motivated to help since this would allow him to earn another feather for Indian Guides.

And motivated he was. He mentioned several times earlier today that he was ready to clean the garage, and he actually did help more than I expected. He helped me move things out of the garage before I used the lawn blower to "sweep" out the dust; then we neatly moved back everything (except for those items I determined should just end up in the dumpster).

I was surprised at how quickly we accomplished our task. I definitely would not have finished as quickly if he hadn't been helping me. He can't wait until our next tribe meeting to be recognized for helping his dad with a big task.

random. arbitrary. completely unnecessary. yet refreshingly therapeutic.
