In the last few days, Noah has taken a keen interest in helping out around the house. It started with laundry. A few weeks ago, he learned how to fold laundry, and now he can do a load from start to finish - filling the washer, transferring to the dryer, folding and putting away. It's not perfect, of course. I've found all sorts of strange things in strange places today. But he makes a very entertaining game of matching up lonely socks and puzzling over where our missing socks are. I hope he can solve that one for me.

I came downstairs this morning and found these piles of folded washcloths. Now that's a good way to start a day.

He has also started taking out the trash and recycling. It started innocently, but now he is insisting that he trash needs to be taken out once the can is almost half full, and he has spent way too much time looking in the trash and recycling so that he can monitor our trash level. So, of course, Isaac is now monitoring our trash level. It's well-intentioned, but there's been too many heads in the trash can today.

But the best moment of the day was when I walked into the kitchen and found the boys cooperating and hard at work unloading the dishwasher, completely naked.

These boys are quite dedicated to housework. I need to find a way to continue the focus!
