Any way! Jake and Della are good buddies and she happened to have a teachers workday today so she came to spend a couple of nights with us. We did a very light day of homeschooling today so they would have time to have all kinds of fun. We just did Family Math and Art. Cocoa over at Chocolate on my Cranium did this post on 3D drawing and I have been waiting for the perfect chance to do it.

I decided to make the magnets so Jake can look on the fridge and decide to do an "extra chore" for cash. You know all the ones I don't want to do. :) I have things like "27 Fling Boogie"-have you heard of that? (Check out this awesome decluttering and house cleaning website. I
