Sunday Clean Up

This is actually something my mom used to do every Sunday when my sister and I were little. Tim and I have always done a very informal version, but yesterday I was trying to get a LOT done because we were behind on household chores after a busy weekend. I took two clipboards and made each of the boys a list with a mix of things they could do alone and with help. There was a picture, words, and a box for them to check when they were finished with the job. Tim and I did other stuff in the same rooms so we were close to help when they needed it and worked at a speed that let us finish everything else. Kylee even cooperated by sleeping through most of the job! The timing worked out almost perfect for everyone to finish at the same time to be ready for Popcorn Night (another carry-over tradition).
