I was checking my email and blogs on the computer yesterday morning, waiting for the girls to wake up, when Ella came in and told me I needed to cover my eyes because she had a surprise for me. This was it...
She made her bed all by herself :-)! The other day I was telling her how we needed to come up with some chores for her to help me do now that she getting older. I told her she could help me by making her bed, unloading the silverware, etc. and then she could earn marbles. She looked at me and said, "I don't want to do that." :-) Apparently she's had a change of heart.
Addie getting herself into more predicaments...
I desperately needed to finish reading the last 60 pages of my book (see previous post) and figured the best way to do that was keep the girls busy with FUN activities!
First up: Painting
I'm thinking, "How strange Addie has paint on her back! She must be really flexible." :-)
Addie's thinking, "Why would you do that to yourself Ella?!"
I'm thinking, "Addie, why are you walking like you are a raptor?!"
Next up: Bath time
And then: Lunch at the Park
Unfortunately, it is Lovebug season for us once again. Ella is definitely NOT feeling their love!
Lastly: Time to go Home for Naps!Hooray! My plan worked and Pride and Prejudice is finished! Now I need to finish The Bean Trees before my next bookclub selection (The Secret Garden) arrives. Oh, and Emily, you will be happy to know that Twilight is also on it's way to me :-)! It lost to The Secret Garden on our bookclub ballot by 1 vote, but I am still determined to finally read it!
