Nice surprises

I realize that I have neglected to brag about one of my children.  The other day I had gone out grocery shopping and had left the kitchen in some disarray.  OK, that's an understatement.  It would have been incredibly embarrassing if anyone had seen it.  Dirty dishes all over the counters and so much stuff piled on the table that I wondered how we were going to unload the groceries.  It wasn't pretty and not the sort of scene that one looks forward to returning to.

So imagine my surprise (and joy) in finding the kitchen looking like this when I walked in:

No dirty dishes out.  Clean and wiped-off table.  Empty sink.  It was wonderful.  Really, truly wonderful.  And you know the best part?  It was done by one young-ish boy, all on his own without being asked.  Just as a surprise.  Do you want to guess who did this wonderful deed?


Life doesn't get much better than that, huh?
Other randomness--

My near brush with hipness wasn't quite as close as I thought.  It has been pointed out to me that hanging upside down by your toes is called 'Batman-ing'.  Just thought you'd all want to know.

And... I'm very excited to share that I have been asked to be a contributor to the homeschooling website:  Heart of the Matter (online).  This is a really great website that I've been reading for a while and am thrilled to write for it.  My first article is up:  Apron Strings.

It's also not too late to read my article on our field trip to the Grosse Point Lighthouse.  I know I continue to badger you about this, but this is a paying gig and they like those clicks!

That is awesome! Last night my kids all did their evening chores without being asked. It was heaven!

Yea TM! I love when kids help like that. And your appreciation and surprise probably made his day too!
