8 years, 11 months.
Nonna and Papa have lived in their house for exactly 24 years, as of this month. I was just starting high school when we moved in.
But there are parts of that 2 acre lot that are just now being developed; largely inspired by the industrial grade playground that Papa has starting installing.
You have quickly assigned yourself the responsibility of helping to clear part of the land right beyond the playground; using a hatchet and helping maintaining the fire from the cleared brush.
What you don’t realize is that this is ultimately free child labor…
But to you, it’s nothing but fun and adventure!
