My 15 year old is industrious.
Much more so than I was at his age.
He works 1.5 days/week doing remodeling with some close friends. We homeschool, so that makes his schedule flexible enough to facilitate such endeavors.
He worked 3 days/week last summer and plans to do the same this year.
He's also very much a homebody. He loves the outdoors. He traipses through the woods, catches crawdads and dace and minnows from the creek, fishes, and practices with his cast net at the pond frequently.
Today, he discovered a rekindled flame for a project that will become a hangout for his siblings and him. Two stalls of our stable was converted into a sewing room by the previous owner. They did a poor job. The floors are rotting and the crappy Ondura roof is beyond repair. We will be placing metal roofing on it in the next few weeks. He has taken it upon himself to rip out the floors, the walls, and any ceilings that require repair/replacement.
So when I caught him relaxing while I'm out by the pond photographing, he quickly became the subject.
There was a willow in my yard as a kid, but nothing so cool as this one!
