My friend organized this neighborhood progressive play-date.  These girls (plus a lot more…I think there were 18 of them all together).IMG951393They made breakfast at one house, made bracelets at another, played games at another, and lunch at another.

At our house we did nails and swimming.2013-06-19 iPhone 797802013-06-19 summer 79287

  5. Love the post. :) I'm wondering when a good age is to start letting my kids do real chores. They are all pretty little and I'm not sure how to break in to them doing more around the house. Any tips?

    So are you guys building a house or remodeling the one you posted about a long time ago? It looks like you're doing a new construction?

  6. I am also wondering the same thing, is this house project the one you bought a while back or a new construction? What a huge job. So many decisions. Good luck!

  8. Love how Lucy coordinates her bathing suit with her vacuuming. Love the bucket list. Love your pool. Perhaps I should buy your house and move across country for that. LOL.
