Heigh Ho. It’s Off to Work We Go.

Remember our mining adventures from earlier this week? I blogged about them in Our Little Gold Digger.

Piper may be taking this “I’m going to grow up and be a miner” thing too far.

That’s Piper sound asleep with a Tinker Bell reading light.

All she needs is a pick ax, and she’s ready to trudge down into the mines with the seven dwarfs for a hard day’s work. Cue whistling.


Our Little Gold Digger

We sent Piper to the mines yesterday. She’s been lazing about for five whole years. We figured it was time she learn what child labor is all about. And somebody has to help pay for Sissy’s fancy mountain camp. Geez.

Piper went on her mining expedition with her Nana and Papa to the world famous Elijah Mountain Gem Mine. They got their Little Miner’s bucket of dirt and began sifting. And sifting. And sifting. Mining treasures is hard work, but Piper persevered. “You know,” she said, “I’m just really good at this mining thing!”

Turns out, Piper has a knack for mining. She struck it rich! She came home with bags of genuine gem stones.

We set up our own gem cleaning station. Piper’s been hard at work ever since. She’s been washing, scrubbing, sorting. We’re not entirely sure what the glowing one in the bucket is. It’s either real gold or too much flash on the camera. Either way, Piper may have found her true calling.
