I've been away from the log for the week in favor of some time with my brother and his family who came down to visit from Tennessee. The have five children, three of whom she home schools. They are some of the hardest working people I know, and some of the best. We were happy to do our best to spoil them for a week.
One of my treats for the week was having new workout buddies. My brother
works at least 50 hours a week, helps raise those kids, helps keep
house and garden, and still manages to workout 4 or 5 days a week. He
carries dumb bells in his truck and works out on his lunch hour--has for
years. I suppose that's part of what keeps his energy up to keep up
with those young'ns. He and his crew are quite an inspiring bunch.
