for a boy in his troop. Today was concrete work. I'm not certain J would be of any help with the project, but he's there and trying. They had to be there at 8:00am. It was 34 degrees. Helping him pick out clothes that can be ruined was tough. I didn't want him wearing his only winter coat. We paid a big chunk of change for it with the idea he would wear it again this year. His old shoes absolutely don't fit, his old hoodies and light weight jackets are small and didn't go over layers well. The kid is probably in misery in ill-fitting clothes trying to do a job that he is clueless about. On the plus side, he isn't one to whine. I just hope the older, larger boys in the troop came out to push the wheelbarrows,etc. J's been known to tip a yardwaste one. I'd hate to think of the mess that one with concrete would make.
