Today we are having a Life Skills Day. In other words, I can't take the mess anymore so the kids have to clean up all their "projects." This includes various random pieces of craft paper scattered throughout the house, half-finished drawings of fairy princesses, rough drafts of books long forgotten, and of course, the sippy cup of who-knows-what that was taken to the playroom without permission
.
Sadly, the kids still have to do at least math today. Which they won't even begin until the school room looks like a schoolroom, not like a school supply store blew up.

After:

Happy day. I love when it is clean. Or at least not embarrassing. :)

We had an afternoon of cleaning up at our house today too, Rachel. Pretty crazy that our plans matched again (without even talking). Too funny. Say hi to everyone for me.
