green peace.

Today is yard day.

I take care of the yard and help with other random outdoor tasks as often as necessary around here.

I did these things growing up as well.

Weeding.
Mowing.
Shoveling.
Planting.
Edging.
Trimming.
and the list goes on.

If you drove past the Aldous home on a Saturday morning you would see 6 kids and 2 parents working in the yard.

If you didn’t know we lived at the house you might think we were a migrant worker family who liked to make yard work a family activity.

I guess it’s not too far from the truth – well the second part at least.

I never really liked yard work growing up.

Dad always said working in the yard was peaceful and relaxing. I found the opposite to be true. I hurried through the work so I could get to the pool!

It’s funny the things that change as you get older.

I love going out into the yard.

Maybe Dad has been right all these years?
Wouldn’t be the first time Dad was right about something and it took me years to realize it. Ugh.

We know that everything was created spiritually first – does that mean that Heavenly Father had “spiritual” yard work?

“…For it was spiritual in the day that I created it; for it remaineth in the sphere in which I, God, created it, yea, even all things which I prepared for the use of man…” (Moses 3:9)

? Do you like working out in the yard?
