While today definitely started out rough, Gavin managed to pull it together and even earn some privileges back.
My Dad and I were gutting the back of our yard today. We had a lot of overgrowth that needed to be cut out. With my back being shot to hell, I couldn’t do it by myself. We managed to get most everything cut out. The clean up still has a ways to go before were done with that.
However, I had Gavin come outside and help us with some basic clean up things like stacking the freshly cut wood and cleaning up the little scraps left behind.
Gavin did a fantastic job. He was very careful and even got to use some tools, with proper supervision of course.
I guess the whole point is that he really surprised me with how well he listened and quality of work he did. I had to walk him through things a few times but even so, I’m really proud of him. Great job Gavin and thanks Dad for helping me out today. 🙂

I'm guessing not only did he enjoy the physical labor, but he got to spend quality time with you and your dad. I"m guessing if you had to do more activities like this (hands on work in an open area) you would see very similar results. Congrats!
