Just some pictures

A wow moment!

I've come to discover that it is much easier to get my kids to clean up if I make it a game and work with them instead of yelling at them to pick up their toys before I count to 5!
Jeffrey learned a game when Tyson and Grandpa Higham took him to play tennis- its called granpa says. Just like Simon says...and it works wonders! So if I say "Grandpa says pick up your toys as fast as you can!" Then start furiously throwing toys in the works. Who would have thought a little creativity could work wonders? Hmm...I'll have to try that more.
What are your little tricks to get kids to help?

She dresses herself. Can you tell? I think she looks like a little homeless boy in this picture. :)

We live right next to single student housing, and the guys in one apartment built an igloo! They even put a couch inside and slept out there a couple times. Then their friends who are girls came and decorated with colored water and spray bottles. Single people are so creative!
