Let's see, like I said, I was pretty lazy today so I didn't make a big deal about taking pictures, but maybe I'll grab a picture of Jared and the kids tomorrow. We have a few events this week we would like to attend as well, though. And I need to dive into my books to find some things to bring to our homeschool group on Sunday. Jared and Benaiah will be traveling that Sunday to Kansas City, MO with the Bible Bowl team, so I'll have the kids with me again, or maybe get a sitter. Justin has a CIY kick off.
Anyway, I'm off to catch up on a TV show hopefully and put together a simple chore sheet, stick it in a page protector, give the kids a wipe board marker, and then they can have it. Oh! I just remembered how we used to have chore cards in envelopes on the wall in Charlottetown! That worked pretty well, too. But I'm more of a checklist person, and my FlyLady app is great for that. Plus, I need to finalize my Lilla Rose order. I received $240 in sales during this patriotic sale, so I was able to buy a couple of business items and a couple of new products for myself! All from that one 2 minute Facebook video! I can't wait to relaunch the business after I get the books on shelves and the garage ready to receive boxes from storage. Oh, crud, I just remembered Benaiah is going to be gone for two weeks! I'm losing my helper! Oh well, I think if we can get the garage at least rearranged, I can finish that up during that time. I'm watching the ant situation, too, before I put books on bookshelves.
And hopefully, we can schedule Keturah's birthday party and have some other friends over this week.
Happy Father's Day, Jared, Gary and my Dad, Stephen!
|Before you can grill, you have to take the wasp nest down! Yikes!|
|Justin says this is his new favorite couch. He's too long for it! "But I can pet the dog if he lies down here!" But you can do that with any couch, goofball!|
|"Ice cream's house! Vrooms! Bus! No, go (away)!|
|Grilling as always.|
|Time for a nap with Grandpa while the rest of the family watches "Forged in Fire," a TV game type show that has guys and gals making knives from scratch in just a few hours.|
|Let's carry our laundry through the neighborhood! Lol!|
|So quiet during naptime, why? Electronics.|
|Sleeping while the baby sleeps.|
|Empty boxes make great forts!|
|Double door protection.|
|Peek a boo!|
|I love blanket forts!|
|Another new flower in the garden.|
|Justin is keeping Abishai busy outside while Dad works on his project and Mom works on weeding the garden.|
|Don't touch the lava (mulch)!|
|Abishai and Daddy played this game for at least 10 minutes, "jumping" from the porch to the rock to the sidewalk and back again. And then Abishai would let Justin take a turn. Abishai laughed and laughed!|
|Keturah's turn! I don't think I will move the rocks. I kind of like them breaking up all the greenery.|
|Early evening projects.|
