What a big helper! Gabriel and Grant have recently been introduced to the wide world of chores. Oddly enough, they love it! I remember as a little girl I did too….for a while.:) They both vie for vacuum, mopping, or Windex duty and we’ve actually been having fun with it. We’ve even started rotating dish-washing duty. Well, the other day after Grant washed, Gabe rinsed, and I dried, Garrett decided to take a turn. He got right up there and started mimicking what he saw us do. Be still my heart!:) It was so cute and he just looked so proud I had to grab the camera.
This summer has proven to be one of the best ever. Our daily routine is pretty uneventful, but I think that’s why it’s been so wonderful. We play outside, get the sprinkler out, go bike riding, read books and just look at the clouds. We’ve gotten into a great routine together and I’ve managed to balance keeping the house clean, work, and getting quality time in with the boys. Each child is at such a precious stage right now and we just have so much fun together! Gabriel starts first grade in less than two weeks and we are savoring every last drop of summer until then. It’s been a little more challenging with all 3 home at times, but I think we’ve finally gotten into a good groove. By the way, we LOVE our babysitter! I’ve gotten some e-mails asking how she’s worked out and we couldn’t be happier. Now if I could just get this giant pimple off my forehead, things would be perfect! Ha.
