Monday is Bathrooms

I've started training the kids for bathroom cleaning.  Definitely the job I want to get rid of delegate first.  Lizzy cleaned all four bathrooms with me.  She did the sinks, counters, doorknobs, light switches, 2 showers, and 1 toliet.  She asked to get paid for it and was.  Her money was promptly spent on cookies with spinkles on them, and shared with everyone nearby! :)  Sweet girl.

Nye failed at squeezing the rags back into the bucket, but that only meant we got to mop the floors as well.  He's deadly with a spray bottle though.  Wall stains were fleeing the scene (water damage may have been showing up though). 

His real forte was toliet scrubbing.  A job he's been eyeing (and occasionally trying) for the past two months.  Actually being allowed to do it was a dream come true.  (If only all dreams were so productive!)

Proverbs 11:17 (NIV) Memorization

Your kindness will reward you, but your meanness (cruelty) will destory you. (I added, which one will you choose to make it a song-definitely not part of the verse, but appropriate for this age.)  Video below-excuse the full mouth.

Nye's meanness face.

"Awww!  I forgot!"

Of course-the day after I buy Lizzy seven 24-piece puzzles, she does a 90 piece one all by herself.  I may have underestimated her puzzling ability! 
Video of her happy dance below:

Sweetest Part of My Morning...

Hearing my 1 year old singing "Holdy, holdy, holdy.....holdy holdy holdy"  (Lord, God Almighty song) while putting together legos.  And in the distance, downstairs in our game room (putting together a puzzle I assume) is the same strain in a higher 3 year old voice.  "Holy, holy, holy..."

Let the Games Begin

I heard Lee telling Nye to throw the ball tonight.  I looked over my shoulder and jumped as the bat cracked the ball and sailed into the dining room.  After a few minutes of looking for it, the boys uncovered the ball and took their places once more.

Lee is a confident man.  He, as the batter, squared off directly in front of the TV.  See for yourself...
