We filled this day all the way to the brim. We started the day after devotions heading off to Nathaniel's last baseball game of the season. Tim went off to work since he had marathon board meetings to attend this week. Nathaniel's team finally came off with a win, after the other the other team gave them their best player, their pitcher. Afterward, we visited for a bit while munching a bite to eat with the homeschool moms that we had met and became friend with through the season.
We ran a few errands on the way home. We were pleasantly surprised to find that Tim had beat us home. It would have been so easy to waste away the hot afternoon, but we pulled up our boot straps and got outside. Tim and the boys loaded up our old washer and dryer to give to a young couple at church tomorrow who are in need of them. Nathaniel went to the neighbors to do a yard job for them for his new business, We Care Lawn Care. Whitney worked to prepare the meal for after church tomorrow and then came out to help. Tim, David and I, and later Whitney, tackled moving the goat fence again to provide more produce for the goats. It was very hot, around 90', and very humid. We were working in the brush and the bugs. It was not a fun job, but it feels so good to have the job done. We will hook up electricity to the part where we were short goat fence on Monday, but the labor is finished and the goats can clear out the irrigation ditch and save us some hay.
I so enjoy the Saturdays that we can work and sweat together as a family to accomplish a big goal and feel exhausted and satisfied at the end of the day. God truly did creat work, or it would not feel so good to accomplish it.
Off to a deep and restful sleep and the Lord's day tomorrow.
