Friday Cleaning!

Well, toady was Friday CLEANING day!
I just have to say how amazed I am at my children. The entire day was AWESOME!
We had to wake up early to finish Aaron's school project, and were consequently rushed/almost late to school, so I thought the whole day would be as frantic.

It wasn't

I got a great deal done while the kids were at school - bathrooms, laundry, dusting, sheets, my bedroom and closet...
then I took a break to go to feed Nate lunch and do a reading lesson with him and go to a PTA meeting.

Then, the kids came home.
That is when the magic happened.

Charity was upset because she didn't get a stuffed animal (Aaron got one because he sold 2 entertainment books for the school). I was in the kitchen cleaning, and all of a sudden, I heard Aaron say "Hey, why dont you just have the frog - I don't really need it and I see you want it".

I hadn't even said a word to him. I was just about to go ask Charity why she was crying... then I heard him say that...


That started it all. The kids were so cheerful doing their chores. I didn't raise my voice and was so pleased with how awesome they did! Charity cleaned out under her bed and the boys didn't complain about cleaning their room. We finished all our chores and it was only 4:15!
Just wanted to say how happy I am to have the most wonderful children in the world. I am so glad they are such awesome helpers and so sweet to eachother!
