Whistle while you work!

Travis is in the stage right now where he LOVES to get into the drawers and pull EVERYTHING out of them. This past week, he had discovered that there are some pretty cool rags in one of the draws in the kitchen. About once a day, usual in the evening when I'm getting dinner ready, he goes to the drawer, pulls out a rag and goes and wipes things up off the floor and cupboard doors...too cute to watch! We have been cleaning up around the house the last couple of days in preparation for my parents to visit next week, so I decided to put Travis' curiousity and Carson's good work to use and had them dust for me. They do a pretty darn good job of it! It gets me excited for when I can finally pass of bathroom cleaning duty to them!

The past week had been pretty uneventful for us. We were all sick over the weekend with a cold. The boys and Christian are still hanging on to theirs, but are on the mend. We are excited for our trip to Laramie this weekend to see Matthew and Charlene and to go to the UW game...if we don't freeze to death! We are also looking forward to a visit from my parents who are coming Sunday night some time! We enjoyed probably our last nice today. It was in the 70's today so we walked to the park and played. It's supposed to turn cold next couple of days so I think our park playing days are over...sad day!

I think you have the right idea!! AND...the right idea to pass bathroom duty on as well!! Good luck with that. Brenn tries...but it I reclean it when he leaves the house...just for safe measure. :)
Travel safe!

Good little helpers you've got there!!! My kids LOVE to wash windows, we go through a lot of Windex, but I find that it keeps them productive instead of messing things up as fast as I clean, so that is BIG time help!

What cuties! I love it now that Blake is interested in "helping" me do some of the household duties! Kyle even gets into helping me do the laundry! I can't wait either for the day that I get to pass off the bathroom duty too! Have fun in Laramie... Nick and I are still playing around with the idea of heading there this weekend for the game too! Hope you have a blast with your parents too!
