We're spending today cleaning the house instead of homeschooling. I am even having the boys clean out the papers under their beds! We've filled an entire grocery-size bag. Two children colouring one sheet each day really adds up! That, and they also bring home papers from church and store little notes everywhere. Then they never look at it again! I keep imagining that mice would love it if they ever found that mountain of sheets.I'm trying to organize Elf and Emperor's toys and books a bit better. I'm negotiating trades for old board books, wooden blocks, and the surviving pieces of our wooden Noah's Ark set. I took the boys to Wal-Mart (I hate that place!) so that they could spend the allowance they've been accruing on Legos. The Lego company gets over 90 percent of their allowance over the course of a year. However, at 50 cents a week (and they tithe on that AND give to missions), it isn't much.
