One of my favorite things about educating my children at home are field trips. We thrive on seeing how things are made, how things work, how people work together as a team, and of course to see the final product. Not to mention, all the similarities of the process to the process of eternal life.
This field trip was totally unexpected. We didn’t even have to get out of our jammies. (But we did.)
The local government came and repaved our street. Now I know this might seem like totally boring. But, it wasn’t. It was better than Lightening McQueen (from Cars) paving the street.
That machine was simply amazing! Taking off the old yucky stuff – getting ready for the hot, fresh, and black gravel that is going to make it look clean, smooth and a totally new creation.
These are my two firstborns – my firstborn son and my firstborn daughter.
Without the guy in the middle, the truck driver would not have known how far to drive up, therefore making a mess. He was the helper or the guiding force.
The RX 700 was the machine that tore up the streets. Without him, the new street would have been just patches not actually made new.
The machines used where LOUD and abrasive!
This girl doesn’t like LOUD things…including toilets.
After a while, we had to quit watching and go do our bookwork.
It was fun while it lasted and now my children have a greater understanding of the streets and other things. When they ride their bikes – they have a greater appreciation of the hard work and the sacrifice that went into it.
Blessings to you! You are loved!
