Isn’t there some unwritten rule that after 4:00 pm on a Sunday afternoon is the time when you shouldn’t have to be doing anything? What better way to end the day than to haul bricks from point A to point B? Getting our kids out of the house for even an hour is a struggle. They stayed out for 2 hours today riding bikes, motorized scooters and shot hoops. They thought after all that exercise that they would cruise for the remainder of the day inside with the Disney Channel or some form of video game.
My crazy husband had something different in mind. Why not have our three kids (ages 15, 9 and 7) transport the ton of bricks he just purchased at Home Depot. to the proper destination in the backyard? “Kill two birds with one stone” he would say…”they get the exercise and I get my bricks moved”.
