Sunday January 23-Almost every week after church we go out to Grandma Jean's house for dinner. One of the kids favorite things to do each Sunday is "beads" as they call it.
Monday January 24-I got in my head the idea to take everything off my bookshelves, dust and put everything back. It took almost the whole day, but it feels so nice to have it done!
Tuesday January 25-Every so often my kids need an over-haul on our chores system. The old system was that they had one chore for each year old they are and that was what they did everyday. They have been asking for rotating chores for a little while, so this is what I came up with. Honestly, it is more work for me to have these chores because I have to take the time to help them learn how to do it and I could do it myself faster, but I am happy to be teaching them responsibility and hope that some day they will be able to do it on their own. I also try really hard not to go back and fix them after they are done.
Wednesday January 26-These three kids were being so cute playing the piano together. They had background music on and were all dancing to the music. Brayden's dancing is ADORABLE!!!
Thursday January 27-Hailey and Ally have been sharing a 1700 sq/ft bedroom (our unfinished basement) for awhile now. It has worked out great so we have more room for clothes and things. BUT, they love to stay up talking at night. They argue tons during the day, but when the lights go out at bedtime they turn into giggly best friends. I am glad they like to talk to eachother but it drives me nuts when I need them to get some sleep.
