Day 24 Gratitude Challenge

Today I am grateful for getting my house clean for Thanksgiving.  The kids all helped and we were able to pick up and dust every room. I am thankful that they kept up their happy, holiday mood through the whole process as well.  As usual they made a game out of cleaning their room. I give them my camera, which has a video feature on it and they  video taped themselves doing the show “The Messiest Room Ever”. Rebekah is always the “host”, Ben plays the sound effects on the keyboard, and Sarah runs the video camera. Then they proceed to video tape what the room looks like and how they clean it up.  It may take a little bit of time to clean in this manner, but they stay happy and focused on the task. A bonus for me is: they bring me the camera to watch the video so I can check their work without stopping mine and walking upstairs.

Thank you Lord for kids that make a game out of cleaning.

Head on over to Garden of Learning and read what other’s are thankful for today. And thank you to Brenda for hosting this Gratitude Challenge.

That's just precious. I love that we can catch these moments on video so easily. We're lucky. Isn't it a nice feeling when the whole house is clean? I love it! I hope your Thanksgiving was fabulous.
