My son picked up the paste brush the other day and said "Hey dad need some help?"

That is a cool picture right there. I am sure that you have never been more proud. Is that the living room?

Yep I do all my work in the house (Living room, den, kitchen, laundry room). Very proud, actually so proud of him I gave him 5 bucks for helpping me out. ;)

I started my shop this past year.  My 8 year old has been hesitant to get involved, but this past weekend he spent most of the day with me while I mounted a whitetail. Mostly coloring and playing with potters clay.  Two nights ago he helped me dry some beaver skulls that had just come out of the peroxide.  He asked me if he could have one for his room.  I asked him what one he wanted and of course, the biggest one of the batch was the first choice.  I then told him that he would have to mount it to the drift wood before it went on the shelf.  Was a blast spending time with both of my passions!  Be proud and enjoy them while they are around.

three of my 4 kids have all been involved to some degree. The youngest, my daughter just mounted her second deer for the show. She got a first in amatuer last time so she wants to move up to professional. My two sons do all of my caping and fleshind and help with big mounts.

It's really fun having them out there.

How much did you give the dog?  Looks like he is helping too lol.  Can say I'm jealous not having any kids as a helper.  But I got my dog who is my shop buddy so I guess that is why I noticed your dog.  Thanks for reminding us all what really matters in life and not to be too busy to notice.
