Weekend Chores

Last weekend was spent doing chores....

but, if you ask my little buddy....painting the chicken coop...is not a chore.

It's a chore we do every fall....and he loves it.

He takes so much pride in all he does....and won't stop till it's done....even when mom's tired and ready to go take a shower....the "chicken coop manager" won't let her. And I've already been told that this weekend we have to finish painting all the posts and clean out the coop....who made him the boss anyway.
