While the work on the house is still in progress we are starting to see a real difference. Even my mom commented on how nice it looked! LOL The kids are starting to get a little better about picking up their stuff because they see how the rest of the house looks.
I think I need to box up a bunch of toys - then they would have less to make a mess with. They seem to have certain things that ALWAYS get played with (Lego's, Chase's cool new trucks, Rescue Heroes) so those things would stay along with a "baby" or two for Victory. But I think the rest could go away until we sell :)
Sounds like we'll have another break from the kids at the end of the week, so we should be able to get some of the painting done as well as more cleaning. Then on Saturday we'll be celebrating Chase's birthday with the Osell side of the family. I think Chuck E. Cheese is the plan at this point :)
Enough for now! I'm going to go work on the house :)
