Cleaning the Shed...But First, a Zip Line

"A typical Bates project, we're not quite done with one, we start another."
-Jackson Bates

Kelly Bates is getting her longtime wish. Gil Bates and the Bates boys are finally going to clean out the shed! Although some of the workers get a bit distracted at times, the Bates mama is still thrilled that they are making an effort.

One of the distractions results in a zip line for the little kids, which gives the children something fun to do together, so Kelly really can't be upset about that, can she? Do any of you have a zip line? They're quite fun!

  1. I think if I were Kelly I would go crazy with the projects not being finished in a timely manner! I appreciate her sense of humor and patience with it all - better than anger and nagging!

  2. Zip lines are dangerous.My neighbors brothers grandson died from playing on a zip line. He was only 11 years old. He string from hie sweatshirt got tangled in the line and it choke him to dead.

    Ellie please print this so people know that zip lines Andre not safe.
