Today Lloyd got up, showered, got dressed for school, followed me out the driveway, drove to the city limits of Seward…..then turned right around, came home, and cleaned up the yard.
He did not have school today, even though when I asked this weekend, “Are you out on Monday? We’re going to have a lot of children at the center because Seward is out.” He lied and said, “No.”
He did this once before. The last time he cleaned up the whole basement. It’s such a shock because his deception is so thorough. I mean….driving away? Dressed up? Coming home is so disorienting. “Why is he home? Why is he wearing that? Why is it so clean? Am I dead?”
Here are some photos of his amazingness, though they are only meaningful if you can understand that we HATE yardwork, and every nook and cranny was filled with a foot of compacted leaves and dead weeds. Brad has been our only lifeline to greenery, though Lloyd has really stepped it up recently. It’s really too bad that there are no ‘before’ pictures. Lloyd said he raked up seventeen billion trash cans of leaves from the front yard and side garden.
