I declared that this weekend was going to be project de-clutter! I'm not absolutely positive, but I think Catherine is growling in protest in this picture.
After a nourishing breakfast, we were all ready to begin.
Some of us really jumped at the chance to get organized. My new philosophy is: if I see if on the floor, you must not care about the toy very much, so I will give it to Goodwill. Also, everyone gets one bin to keep their special items in. Everything else is going to be played with on a permission only basis.
While the kids were busy putting all my clean towels on the floor to make doll beds (why can't the dolls sleep on the kids' beds?), I actually cleared off a windowsill. Doesn't this look so zen? I didn't take a before picture. I didn't want to scare you all.
Meanwhile, Victoria was contemplating the merits of the wooden chair.
Ummm, can I get a little help here?
The doctor gave Victoria permission to be upright. She was thrilled!
Oh yea, I'm a pro at this!
I may have chocolate on my foot and blue marker on my arm (as well as all over my father's shorts - he really shouldn't fall asleep when I am feeling artistic), but no time for a bath right now, unless this chair is coming with me!
Good job little sister! Francesca may be a sticky fingers, touching everything within reach, but she sure is empathetic!
She figured out how to put her shoes on all by herself! We'll work on learning the difference between left and right another day.
See you all later! I gotta rest, cause who knows what I'm gonna figure out how to do tomorrow!
