Keeping Busy

This week I've had quite a bit of things on my To Do List. The largest project on my list was to pain the trim around our front door, garage door, and the gutter on the lower level of our home. Since this was my biggest project, JA and I decided to tackle it on Monday since the rain seemed to be holding off. One problem -- three little children who love to get involved and help. I definitely don't want them anywhere near the front of our house with paint, so we came up with a new project for the kids to do while we painted. Kara, Lydia, and Andy all had the privilege of washing the car while JA and I worked.

The idea was a tremendous hit. The kids loved splashing in the water, and JA and I were able to work without much interruption and still keep an eye on the kids. I am sure we will be taking advantage of this activity a lot this summer. Here are the pictures of the kids washing the car.
