wash day...

Photobucket

so nice with a little wash day... we have one day every week which is our wash day... sweep... vacuum... mop mop mop... dust.. sometimes even a little "switch-a-roo"

it feels so nice when the new linens are on beds... out with all the old.. a bit of laundry... the reward of a clean tidy home is simple but to me... HUGE! it's so calming and I am loving how our girls really enjoy cleaning as well.... maybe just all the sloshing around in the mop bucket...perhaps?

it's sweet to see the concentration of kids working on something... they feel so proud when they are finished... they get upset when things don't go as they expect... they fix it... and move on... and hold up their token with such a smile... and show it to all that want to see... and those will too smile...

  1. Oooh - what beautiful memories your photos bring back to me of my own little girls! Sigh. Enjoy it while you can though...they seem to lose a bit of the cleaning enthusiasm when they become teens-LOL!

  2. I love your floorboards, we have natural wood floors too but ours are much more golden in colour, I like yours so much better. My little ones love helping with the cleaning too, I agree, I think it is all about the sloshing water around!
