Living Room Tents!

I promised I would show pictures of how my living room transforms in between my kid's two chore times. They have to always fix it by 4pm (used to be 5pm). I think daddy should be able to come home from work to a house where the couch can be sat on. Ha ha. The kids move the couches around and all the blankets are taken off the beds except mine. They make their tents, girls vs. boys, and play. It's so cute. I'm not gonna freak. I used to want my living room to stay clean but that is so not practical. I mean, I homeschool so they are home all day. They have fun using their imagination. In the bottom picture you can see baby Caleb in the swing up on the table and Kyle is working on English or Math. It's a wonder he can concentrate yet he does. I'm so amazed at how well my kids read. It always shocks me when they are reading their bible out loud. I ask "you can read that???" Wowzers.

It looks like a blessed life for all. What great stories and memories your kids will have to share for years to come. Love it!

With our kids spread out by gender (3 boys, then two girls 21,14,13 - 9, and 5) the boys are out of the living room blanket tent/fort age, but the daughters are right in it... and with the 9 year old just about on the edge of being done, the 5 year old pulls her right back in.. We even let ours sleep in their tents (during summer or when there is no school the next day) - our tents stay up for 2-3 days at a time!

Great Post!!
