An Oxymoron


Children WORKING!

And now it’s time for the reward–a lovely Thanksgiving in August.

And all the children shall give thanks that this day is OVER.


  1. Laurel in Northeast Tennessee says:

    I am so sure that these hard working children are thankful for their August Thanksgiving dinner :hungry: …excellent job mom :woof:

  2. Michelle says:

    Oh good, I’m glad it’s not just MY kid! Of course it would be much easier to just do whatever work needs to be done ourselves, but then how would our children ever learn? Life=work – get used to it!

  3. CindyP says:

    On the pretty dishes!

    Good job, Weston and Morgan!!!!

  4. Karen Anne says:

    Thanksgiving more than once a year, what an excellent idea.

  5. Suzanne McMinn says:

    It says French Rose 1264 on the bottom. From what I can find, it’s a vintage pattern imported from Japan.

  6. Nancy says:

    You know, some people feel the first Thanksgiving WAS in August!? Don’t know if it was because their Mom made them work extra hard that day or not though! :hungry:

  7. Joy says:

    You’ve probably heard from others but your blog, website and newletter have some kind of problems-no pictures, strange spacing really far apart between typing and hyperlinks don’t work. (I have a pc) no other problems anywhere else.

  8. corinne says:

    It looks as though there is a fence around the children, did you have to fence them in to get them to work? 😆

  9. Nancy in Iowa says:

    I looked closely, and I’m sure they’re not wearing shock collars that would MAKE them work! Must be love and the carrot of a good meal…. :sun: :hungry:

  10. Darlene in North Ga says:

    Or the threat of never leaving the house again until it was completed. lol

  11. Neener says:

    Gotta Love child labor!

  12. Jessy says:

    You are lucky that you have children who will help you out. I wish that mine would do the same. This makes me think about buying a farm and getting the children back to basics. I love your site and your family seems wonderful. You have what we all want.
