Painting the Fence.. a family thing.

I was touched when our lady neighbor told me that it's so precious and cute that we let the kids paint with us. She said "Painting, as a family thing is so cute and precious." As much as possible, we let the kids participate to whatever we do so that a family value of togetherness and bonding would instill in their young hearts and mind.

But anyhow, this is the second to the last part episodes of our fence project. I was wearing that hat because it was getting hot outside but my son wanted it so I gave it to him. We kept teasing him about it lol.
Do you see Champ's nose? He wanted to help us too.

That's the solid stain we used for the outside part. It looks like a paint but it's not, it's a stain.
Here's the paint team. I love our children's enthusiasm in helping us for everything that we do. Although it makes the job longer but its fun having them as our helper.

It was hot that day so we brought some bottled water outside. Our young man has to have a drink every so often.
All of us has each a hat but EJ did not want to wear his. He is wearing his Dad's hat now lol.
So guys, if you have some painting job, you may hire us hahaha.
"It's a family thing".
EJ can work hard as long as he can have some cookies during break time lol.
so after the painting job was done, we gave the kids some treats for their hard work. A milkshake and a happy meal from Donald (that's how EJ call Mcdo lol).

Thanks for visiting.

awww! This is precious! My kids are in the teens, and they are too busy sometimes for family time...miss these days - keep them treasured :)

The fence is of good quality. For the kids, they enjoy this activity. So much fun they don't realize a couple of things:

1) As they get older, performing chores will not bother them
2) Taking care of things so they last (as you are doing by staining your fence) is learned too

They earned their trip to 'Donald!

Sylvia K said...

Such a lovely family you have! And it is marvelous to encourage them to help with projects like your fence! We did that with our kids as well. And, yes, they definitely earned their trip to 'Donald! Love all your beautiful family shadows! Enjoy your weekend!

It's simply amazing what your family has done. Your finished fence will become a monument to the labor of love of the Cottrill family. That you were able to include even your kids in this family event is simply amazing and beyond words. The Lord bless you more for the exemplary work you have done in your neighborhood. I know your neighbors and all who know you are all so proud of what you have done, except probably the thieves in your FIL's house, lol. Thanks for the feel good post. God bless you all always.

This is the best way to make your family soooo close! And to train your children to be good workers! Wonderful pictures--I loved them. I like your sweetness, your love for your children, and your way of writing, Rose.
Have a great weekend!

Oh, I also wish you would teach me how to do the "cup of coffee" and other symbols!

Well done, doing things around the house as a family is a great way to set values for you children.

I love your photos, and if you want to come on down to New Zealand I'm sure we can find a fence or two for you to paint.
