We all have jobs to do

Everyone has jobs to do around the home.
The way to survive a larger family is to ensure all members contribute in whatever way they can. And to make life harmonious, to do those jobs without complaining.
It may not be fun, but there is a certain satisfaction knowing that your assistance is an obvious help for those around you.
Rose (pictured) sees the boys leave the house to collect firewood and runs along behind them to help in her way. The boys select a log which is light enough for her to carry and she cheerfully brings it in to me or whoever is stacking the wood box inside.

The look on her face in this photo is because I asked her to wait whilst I took a photo.

Rose does not seem convinced!

She was much happier when I stopped taking her photo and relieved her of her burden.
