Work is a 4-letter word

August 15, 2012

While we were at the grandparents’ home, we observed many jobs that are not generally included in our household. Some, the kids were eager to join. Others, we were pretty happy just to watch.
• Moving the cows
• Getting water from the river
• Tilling the fields
• Cooking
• Shelling the peanuts
• Shopping
• Harvesting, drying, and grinding the maize
• Feeding the chickens
• General goffering
• Sweeping the dirt
• Maintaining the mud houses

    I would imagine your kids had never heard of or ever considered most of the jobs.
