This is not a completely rosy picture. There are still plenty of moans and groans as I announce the project list for the evening or weekend. At the beginning, no one is volunteering or running up to get their work clothes on. But once we put some good music on and the project gets started, everyone gets on board.
Last night we worked on painting the chicken barn. The boys dug in and we got a lot done. I love working with these guys.
Mom is here this week. For all of the boys' birthdays, she gave us Twins tickets. Only in Minnesota do you have to wear a down coat and bring a blanket to a baseball game in September. We had a great time though. The Tigers (Mom's team) beat us with two back-to-back home runs in the top of the ninth inning. Fun was had by all.

It made me super thankful to God for Benjamin and the young man that he is becoming. It made me thankful for my dad and the way that he loved me and brought me up. It made me thankful for Amanda and her support of our trip, staying home with the other five by herself.
Here are some pictures of two dudes having a great weekend.
A tradition has begun at the Gammons house. Caleb and I have already begun talking about where we will go for his 12th birthday trip. Thanks, Ben, for a great weekend. I'm glad I'm your daddy.
