A Carrot Eating Dog and Children Hard at Work

How many more do I have to peel?

Not a peel goes to waste...
 We made homemade pizza last night, like every Friday night.  Everybody pitches in... even little Elsie peeling carrots with the help of big brother and his hound dog.  Our other children chop pineapple, slice olives, decorate the pizza, etc.  The hardest part is waiting for the pizza's to cook.

After pizza we clean up and everyone brings their sleeping bag and pillow to the living room for a sleepover and a family movie.  My kids really look forward to this evening of fun at the end of their work week. 

With a big family to feed and educate and clean up after, it truly is a work week for all involved, even the wee little ones.  My children are very happy with work and usually look forward to learning and love to just be together as a family.  They fight on occasion, they grumble once in awhile, but for the most part they have learned their duties and pitch in to help.  I am so blessed to have all five of them in my keeping and care.  I am thankful to the Lord that He has chosen me to Mother his precious little ones.  What an honor regardless of what others may say!
The guinea pigs GREEN jungle...
Why is this picture in here?  The little ones thought they'd help feed sister's guinea pigs and dumped a huge sack of lettuce.... HELPING, as they say.... it was so funny because everyone was so busy helping and hard at work and everyone benefited, even the wee pigs!
