Rainy Days

The weather around here today was nothing but dreary and gross.  As a result the kids were stuck inside and all I heard was "I'm bored"  "Sooooo bored" "This is boring" "I'm bored, why can't we go outside".    So we decided to make a playhouse.   We used the box that our new dishwasher came in and I cut out a door and a little window on the side.
Pay no attention to the messy floor of their bedroom.  They just cleaned it up enough so the floor was actually visible yesterday.

Then they grabbed their crayons and colored pencils and went to town "painting" their house.

After they were finished decorating they played in it for several hours while I cleaned the bathrooms.  So at least I was able to get some work done today.
