Delegate Schmelagate

Day #4.  Delegate chores.  I do that fairly well already.  The "bigs" do a reasonably good job with laundry, dishes, and other assorted chores.  In fact, I have a handy dandy "how to tidy our house" list on our fridge which, when I make enough noise, they occasionally use.  So good.  Maybe I'm okay with this Minimalist Parenting thing... we shall see.

In other news, this is happening:

We've decided to bite the bullet and remove the wall between the kitchen and dining room.  We've wanted to do it for 10 years and now that there are 6 of us trying to fit into the dining room, it's become apparent that we really just needed to suck it up and make it happen.  Of course, we hadn't planned on 4 hours of an electrician's time to make sense of the wack-a-doo wiring the original builders threw in.  The house is currently a dusty mess, but it already feels like a bigger, more practical space.

And in completely different news, Jill is joining the lighting department of the local theater for their production of Beauty in the Beast in May.  She's over the moon.  She's also starting SAT prep in a few weeks.  Katie will be joining the props department AND playing volleyball.  Soccer starts for Graham in a few weeks and wrapping up a very busy Cub Scout year.  So here comes spring!  Bring it!
