The Working Man

I have to brag today. Christopher started his first real, official JOB! There is a family in our ward that owns a horse farm. We heard through the grapevine a few weeks ago that they hire teenagers to come and work in their barn cleaning out stables and such. So we gave them a call to see if Christopher could come and help out. They didn't need any help at the time. But they called us last week to see if Christopher was still interested in working for them. He was, so they had him start this morning. He has to be there before 7am each morning to clean out the horse stables, feed and water the horses. He came home today a little worn out, smelling like manure but with a huge smile on his face. "They want me to come back tomorrow, and the day after that!" he said. Whoohoo!! I'm just as excited as he is! He cleaned out 5 stalls today and watered all of the horses (around 30). He said that it was a lot of work but that he actually had a fun time doing it. Imagine that!

How cool! That's excellent, Critter! What an interesting and fun job. Can't wait to hear more about it! I understand that it's hard work, but how rewarding. You'll get to know those horses and they, you. Keep up the good work!

That is so awesome! I truly believe that good HARD work makes a boy into the type of man he should be. Way to go Chris!
