15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
Daddy's Little Helpers

The following photo was taken on a hot summer day. Our family was remodeling a home previously ravaged by fire. All of the kids ages 5-13 were given jobs they could do to help. This was a moment where they were all in the same room with their father, all working hard. It often takes longer with the extra “help,” hard working kids become hard working adults.
