Every once-in-a-while, the girls go out and wash barn walls. It's such a pleasant job!! They generally pick a day when their not going anywhere, and don't bother trying to look nice.
Looks like Hosanna's washing an area a cow bumped a few times too many. By the way, thanks, Silas, for taking these pictures! Priscilla is helping too, but she would not want you to see that picture!
Looks good, Naomi. Do you suppose it will actually smell clean when their done? I doubt it.
On another note, for a few years now Arthur and I have done our church's VBS. We usually work on it this time of year when things are a little slower. Anyway, we started out giving a tootsie roll for every verse the kids said but then we had a few that couldn't eat candy so we added a few cheap trinkets to our tootsie roll container. Mostly things from a catalog like Oriental Trading Co. or US Toy (not US made stuff!). Anyway, we'd like to not buy China stuff this year if we can help it. The problem is, after looking at US made stuff, there's just not a lot you can buy that is under 5 cents a piece. So we'd like your help. Anyone have any suggestions? We've got a few ideas but could use a few more. We'd also love a few new ideas on creative ways to teach verses. Have a great day!
