Today we were out full-force! After breakfast, the kids dug into their chores, with Chad and I assisting. I find more and more that Chad and I just seem to divide and conquer-him with the boys, me with the girls. That's true with bath time, bedtime, cleaning, etc. It works. Besides, the girls are definitely in the 'mommy's girl' stage. They won't be satisfied with anyone else. Chad tries not to be offended, and it's a double-edged sword for me. I'm thankful they need me so desperately right now...and it can be tiring.
We worked all day long--inside and out. I came in and realized I got a teeny bit of a sunburn. I'm out of the habit of being sure to wear moisturizer with sunscreen. Dad Barnett came over, brought some supplies, and helped us out with several things we're needing to do in preparing for selling the house. We so appreciate his help. Chad took some of our clutter from the garage to my parents' garage. I'm sure they'll be thrilled when we finally take bake all the junk we've got stored over there. Hopefully sooner than later!
The kids played outside all day with a couple of neighbor friends. Spy games, trampoline games, ball, etc. They were just loving the sunshine. The snow is melting and I couldn't be more thrilled. I know we'll get a few more snowstorms, but this peek at spring is just delightful.
