Yesterday was one of those days. . . I was "behind" all day. The morning shower took place at 4:30pm. . . dinner served at 7:00 pm. . . and the kitchen bar never was de-cluttered. But today, I was "out of the gate" with renewed energy and began our home school "table time" right on time. The best part was when Mr. Z declared he would be cleaning up the kitchen. And clean he did! He then led me into the kitchen with my eyes closed for the grand reveal. . . "Look Mom, you're going to be soooo happy!" And delighted I was!! You could see all the kitchen counters once again. He then banned everyone from the kitchen as he made PB & J for lunch. What a blessing God gave me today.

Speaking of helpers. . . Look at this little helper. She was asked to bring the garbage to the back door. But then. . .

Something must have distracted her.

The garbage bags ended up in the family room!

Now after a trip downstairs I say, "Yikes!" We have another clean-up project tomorrow. It's never ending, isn't it?
But I do thank God for my helpers.
Hope you had a wonderful Wednesday!


  1. Awww - that is so sweet. At least she tried to help : )

  2. I left you a little somethin' on my blog : )

  3. Oh that is so precious! I love it when a child offers to help out on their own accord. It just blesses a mother doesn't it?

  4. She is so stinkin' cute! The work really never does end, does it? {sigh}
