Jess and I have been struggling with Carter at home. He gets irritated with us when he is asked to help around the house. Lots of eye rolling, huffing & sighing, and foot stomping. After Jess and I talked & after talking with Carter we decided the best thing to do is to go back to chore charts. That way there is a visible list that the boys know will be on the counter. We started that today. There seemed to be less complaints and more work. Hopefully attitudes about helping will continue to improve.
Grandma came back to our house tonight and spent the night. The boys were super excited to have her here again. They always enjoy having her all to themselves.

|Helping with chores|

The boy's both took photos today with the point and shoot. Glad they are picking up the camera to help document this week from their perspective.
