Each member of our family is so different, like individual components of a symphony. But, like a symphony, each part is important to the overall structure and sound of the piece. We all work together to make a beautiful sound...our family. Just as the Lord knit us together in the womb, He is now knitting us together as a family, for His glory, outside the womb.

Cleaning out the Closets

This weeks' cleaning task is cleaning out the closets.  I already did the linen closet, which I showed you last week, so on to more!

I added nails to the board in the closet to hang the brooms and such.  I used our champagne holder, which we got for our wedding and never use, as an umbrella holder.

It seems that whenever a space opens up, the kids find a way to fill it.  They have made good use out of the open floor space in the coat closet, now.  F and Cb's like to throw all their blankets and stuffed animals in there and create a nest.  The older three have been playing some kind of games in there, not sure what, though.  I just hear the closet door opening and shutting and them running in and out.  Tiny A likes to go in, have you shut the door, and then he pushes it open and laughs when I say, "Peek-a-boo!"  Why do we even have toys?  I think I should get rid of all the toys and provide them with clean open spaces and cardboard boxes to play in.  If only I could bring myself to do it.
