You're grounded!

Last weekend we did a lot of yard work.

Our landscaping has been so successful, we had to dig up and divide some plants. The neighbors were quite happy with that since they got free plants.

Just look at how pretty my cutting garden is!

Since we knew it would be a lot of hard work, Dean asked Ripstick Boy to be home from a sleepover by 8 am to help out.
When morning came, Dean didn't call RB because he wanted to "see" if he would show up.

well you KNOW what happened........

Ripstick Boy didn't show at 8 am.
In fact, Ripstick Boy didn't show until well after 2 pm. (when his friend had to mow his own lawn)

Dean was not happy. He grounded RB for 3 WHOLE DAYS (3 days, snicker)

About 4:30 Dean decided to play a trick on RB but needed help to pull it off.
Neither Curly Girl nor I would help unless RB's "sentence" was lightened. (I know, I am such a sucker...)

Dean agreed to our demands and we helped him carry out his dirty deed........

oh yeah........the rest of the sentence was dismissed after the motion detector light was installed, the lawn was mown AND a second bucket of water RB's request.

I'm glad you gave RB a break and suspended his sentence. He's a good kid!

Haha, what a great capture! And definitely a fair exchange for a lesser sentence. Love it. ;)

Hahahahaha. I always get so mad at the kids that I am just steaming. Then when hubby wants to carry out the sentence I have to leave the room. It kills me to see them grounded! Well that and it makes more work for me to put up with them!

Guess I am just a stickler for following what we are told, however, in this case, it appears RB got punished enough!
