The picture doesn't do it justice, but this is what you get when four boys (ages 8 and under) show up at your door and offer to shovel your driveway. Can you see the snow lines every which way, and more importantly, the vast quantities of snow still on the driveway? I went out eventually (this picture was after the boys had been hard at "work" for more than 20 minutes) and helped organized the well-meaning and hard-working if a little chaotic boys. They were adorable, but turns out when you pay $1 per kid, you get...well, a chaotic haphazard shoveling job. But it sure beat shoveling alone. They were worth it for the comic relief. :)
And yes, I'm now finished shoveling for the second time tonight. Sigh. It's going to be a looong winter. Hope Santa brings us some good video games.
