Since Jamie, Katherine and Ethan decided to act like monkeys, they were sentenced to being grounded until they scrape and paint the rails on the porch and stairs outside. Right now they are working away with wire brushes. I need to think of more productive punishments like this. I've been helping them also, but Jamie especially does a great job.
I would take a picture of the busy bees, but I'm waiting to buy batteries for the camera because I didn't budget it for this pay period.
