“Great economies are built by families who know how to work, and who will invest the thousands of hours and 15-20 years required to train their sons in the character trait of diligence. Nations are built, one son at a time. And nations come apart, one son at a time.” ~Douglas French
We had a wedding to cater Saturday night, actually, this was Olivia’s job and I worked for her this time. To be honest it was nice to step back and let her much younger mind and body handle the pressure.
It is a very gratifying feeling when you see your children pick up your baton, or spatula, and run faster and harder with it.
This was Cherish’s second time to help with the food prep and serving. She LOVED it and is a natural.
I loved watching her and Olivia work in the kitchen all morning, as they laughed and sang.
Hayden (7), went shopping with Olivia and I the day before. He was a huge help as he helped carry bags and pushed shopping carts. He listened to the two of us talk facts, figures and ingredients all day. He would never get this in a typical first grade classroom.
As I observed the children the last few days, it was such a great reminder of how important it is to have some sort of home industry. They learn so much about economics, service, quality, family unity and work ethic. This is the real classroom of life as they learn things they will apply and remember!
