My boys were on Fall Break the week before last.
We didn’t have any money to travel anywhere, so we decided to try and “knock out” a bunch of projects around the house. Cy took 3 days off work to get things done.
We made a deal with the boys. We told them that we would make a check list of all the things we needed to get done each of the 3 days. If we got everything on our list completed, we would do something fun each night to celebrate.
Here was the catch: They had to help us complete the things on the list!
They were totally up for it!
We spent three days working on the fireplace…
And filling in nail holes….
And sanding walls….
And painting walls….
And filing in more nail holes….
And constructing a newel post…
And painting a fireplace and trim work….
And filling more nail holes…
We worked our tails off, y’all! And we got everything (well, almost everything) checked off our list.
The boys worked really hard all three days. They helped us a lot outside too. They cleaned up around the yard, and picked up all the scrap pieces of wood to put in the burn pile.
So to celebrate our hard work, we partied each night!
We went to see Hotel Transylvania in 3D. It was really cute, and we had a great time!
Laser Tag and Skating
I put together a little video to highlight the fun.
(Please don’t judge my dancing skills. I had roller skates on.)
Have a blessed day!
