Now that the kids are old enough, they have jobs they have to complete every day. I have 2 little whiteboards near the door. Every time I need something done, I write it on their board and they have to complete it and check it off. So far, no complaints! Today's jobs were: 

1. Put away her clean laundry. 
2. Unload dishwasher. 
3. Set table 

1. Put away his clean laundry. 
2. Pull in garbage
3. Practice piano
4. Finish any homework (it's always due Fridays)

Sometimes, it hard for me because (with Elizabeth especially) the jobs take SO MUCH longer than if I were just to do it myself. I just have to remind myself that they need to learn to do these things no matter how long it takes them. 

Here was Nathan mopping the floors the other day.

Just needed to throw up a picture of the kids running across the snow mountains in the church parking lot. 

Cascade Mountains

Jeremy and I went to Seattle last week and I took some pretty pictures of the drive. 

We went the Snoqualmie Falls way and made a quick stop by the falls. It was 45 degrees so I thought it would feel warm compared to the 10 degrees it was at home. Yet it somehow still felt really cold? 


Elizabeth has been begging me for bangs for a while. They will take a bit more maintenance, but hopefully her hair is straight enough they will lie flat and not be too much to work with. Here she is with her new bangs.
