I don't say it nearly enough
but my kids are really awesome! Not only did they help outside today in the heat, but they have played nicely together and are now helping with some chores. They have their moments, they are kids after all, but I love that they are good kids and they are always there to help each other out. Case and point, after they were cover in mud from gardening and I took them up for bath, Brittan was helping wash Gray's feet while Haven got the kids clothes together. They fight a lot, but when push comes to shove, they are there to help each other out in an instance. I also love that they do chores, usually willingly. We have really encouraged the idea that a family is a team, and that all members must work together. Is it perfect? NO! Are the girls arguing right now as they fold clothes? YES! But the clothes will get folded and put away, and they will get talked to about the whining or crying or whatever the problem is, and they will learn from it. They are really great kids.
