The time of their lives

Shaarei Tefila (where I learn in the mornings) is currently being bashed around as part of the new building. At the beginning of the week, a digger arrived to whack bits off the building and dig a large hole where the bits were.

Being the little boy at heart, I popped out every now and then to, erm, check that the builders weren't slacking. Honest, I wasn't watching the digger, I was making sure they were doing their job right. Ahem.

Anyway, I got chatting to the chap who drives the digger, and pointed out that he should do this job in the evenings as he would have a large crowd of cheering boys for an audience. He told me (half jokingly I suspect) that if I brought our boys down after school, he would give them a ride in the digger!! Not one to miss an opportunity, I took him up on this.

So, on Friday, I took the boys off to see the digger. True to his word, the driver sat them on his kneee in the cab and let them do some digging. He had his hands over theirs on the controls, but they really felt like they were operating it. A good time was had by all...




They both tried on his hard hat as well...




I got to sit in the cab, but being too big to sit on his knee, I wasn't allowed to drive or dig. Shame :-)
