My workin' Buddy
Today was one of the last times to do my cleaning job, and with all the pain I have been experiencing, I knew I needed help! While Ethan stayed with my neighbor, Kim, Seth came along and was a HUGE boost! He made me so proud! That little guy vacuumed, emptied trash, removed necessities from sinks and replaced them after I cleaned, dusted all the lower parts of furniture, moved lots of things so I could vacuum, toted items up and down the stairs, etc. He was a real trooper, and it paid off - literally. He is excitedly holding his first paycheck! :-) The gal gave him his very own.

Thanks for your help, Seth. You made it a lot easier on Mommy! :-)

Isn't it great to have a little helper? What a great idea to give him a check! I'll have to remember that one.
Just wondered if on top of your pregnancy discomforts, if your ears were also burning last week? Ever heard that old myth??? Anyway, Janelle Manley and I got to meet up at camp and talked almost from the time church ended until the bell rang. Part of our conversation was about you. She had only nice things to say about you and I feel I know you just a little better from that conversation. We plan to get together real soon to finish our "catching up".

Go Seth...I'm proud of you for helping your Mother clean...and for getting your very own check. That's GREAT!! I know that I couldn't make it without my helpers either!

We do want to see a pic of "your Baby in the oven" when you decide to post one. ;)

I was howling laughing at the camp meeting report that you wrote, hilarious!

Take care,
Love, Heather =)

Hey, way to go Seth. Keep them checks a comen in ;-). Hello Mrs. Marta Castle ;-) tell the other Castle hello from your missionary buddies down south. Hope all is well. Man, we hated we didn't get to spend time together in April but we really didn't want to share the bug. Found your blog today and think it is cool. I am working on putting one together - Toodles, and glad to see you enjoying the South so much ;-)

Great job, Seth! Keep up your hard work and helping your Mom! That's really cool that you got your own paycheck!
Love, Aunt Janette

That's very sweet! You're raising some awesome boys, Martha.

He's probably wishing it wasn't your last time cleaning that house, huh?!? My girls would LOVE that...making money, not the cleaning part :)

That is really nice that he was able to help you. So sweet. Looking forward to the day my children will be able to do more to help. Faithy tries; she even asked me if she could wash dishes the other day... I thought it to be safer to say no until she is at least 3... Ha! I guess she thought it looked like fun... Hope she keeps thinking that.

I am very "jealous" that you had time with Janelle! :-) She is one of my dearest friends, and I miss her so much!

Sigh, Daniel, I will have to admit that there are a few things I like about the South! :-) And to think I am having a baby in Dixie!

Thanks for your comments to Seth; he thought it was nice to get them. :-)
