Bread Making

I decided yesterday that I need to get the kids doing more chores because it's good for the soul and nice for me as well. ( For some reason it seem to always come up this time of year.)

They have such a love/hate relationship with responsibility ( much like the rest of us ). It will make adult hood a lot easier if I stay more consistent with it having them do jobs. So I got the boys watering the porch plants and emptying the dishwasher. Ward had to pick up the puzzle pieces.

Renata suggested her own chore- baking or making bread. I love how sweet she is about this. She suggested she get up at 6 in the morning and make bread by herself for the family everyday. Can you tell she has been reading Little House on the Prairie? So I said we would make bread every other day when she got up in the morning. Needless to say, she was thrilled with the whole process and the excitement of getting to do this by herself regularly. I am too.
