Today we got a lot of chores done. After my entry on how my kiddos do laundry, some of you asked how my kids do other chores. For the most part, the big teen works alone and the little ones work as a group. The little ones enjoy doing most chores and are always eager to use the spray bottle and anything that involves water. The big teen did lots of chores today, too, but begged to be left out of the photos. The photos show them cleaning the bathroom floor, the kitchen cabinets, and the kitchen floor. Of course, this process is not flawless. The kitchen floor was actually washed on Saturday, but they dripped so much that they ended up doing the kitchen floor again. Too bad I couldn't catch Tom Sawyer jumping on the wash rag. But you can see his feet doing more of the work than his hands.
They have been emptying the dishwasher for a long time but are just learning how to fill it. There was a lot of discussion on how to fill up all the empty spaces. They were very pleased when they got to put the soap in. Notice that Little Red Ridinghood doesn't put her doll down even during chores.
As the saying goes ~ All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. In their free playtime today, the girls put on a mega birthday party for most of their dolls and the boys played with Playmobil. The girls served imaginary purple and pink cake and 10 different flavors of ice cream. Sounds like a fun party, huh?
We are supposed to get serious snow/wintry mix tonight. I hope it is more snow than wintry mix. I have a very fun-filled day of snow science and crafts planned, so I hope it really shows up. You never can tell in the South.
