Coffee Tin Garden

We finally planted our flowers!

 These flowers make our plain fence look so happy.  :)

The kids have been such great helpers this week.  I came into the dining room one day to find Graydon like this. . .  He really likes to clean the table - especially when there is a bottle of something to spray.

And of course, he's always my little helper in the kitchen.  As soon as I get to work, I can count on him pulling a chair up to the counter and then asking, "Mommy, what are we making?" 

Curtis must be taking some cues from Graydon, because he pretty much took over for me when I was cleaning the upstairs toilet.

They're getting pretty good at the laundry.  Usually I just have them throw the clothes in, but Graydon is graduating to pouring soap and fabric softener as well.    

It's not all work and no play though.  Here's Curtis painting a "flower".

And we also did a lava lamp experiment.  (Oil, water, food coloring, and Alka Seltzer). 

I stopped putting Graydon down for naps a couple of months ago, but this week he definitely needed them again.  I found him like this - in his room and on his glider fast asleep - on three different afternoons!  In fact, as I write this, he must be asleep again - cause he has been up in his room "playing" for quite some time.      
My little boy must be growing some more.
