You deserve an explanation... My computer was in the shop for about a week which is part of the reason I couldn't update the blog. Second, I am EXHAUSTED at night! Jill got a new job a few weeks back and is working like a dog. She is usually home after the kids are already in bed and has been working weekends. This is NOT a complaint; it's a reason. Thank you all for being patient with me and to my wonderful wife for working so hard!
I did have time, however to make a shape and size sorting box for the kids. I flattened a diaper box, cut out shapes with an Exacto knife, glued it back together, and painted it pink. The rest was up to the girls! I still get anxious when they wield paintbrushes or play with messy things, but I am making an effort to do more crafty projects with them. After all, they love making messes!

Here's the set-up: two splat mats, bowls and paper plates for paint, paper for multitasking, and smocks made by our friend Aimee all on a fake hardwood floor for easy cleanup.
