"Impossible for a plain yellow pumpkin to become a golden carriage.. Impossible for a plain country bumpkin and a prince to join in marriage. And four white mice will never be four white horses.."- Rogers and Hammerstein's Cinderella.

This is what has been dictating our schedule as of late.  Diva has a role in it as a Steward and Townsperson, Curly Girl helped with props, Wondertwin C will be an usher, and Wondertwin A is case as a Townsperson and a mouse that turns into a horse. They have 6 performance preceded by 5 (?) dress rehearsals.  They are so excited and they practice their songs all. day. long....

I will post pictures when we get them.

We are notorious for starting a chore plan and never sticking with it very long.  Tonight, we started chores with allowance.  So far, each child can earn 1/2 their age ($3.50, $4.50, and $5) each week.  Each day that they do  not their chores cheerfully, they lose one day's worth of $$.

Twins chores: fold and put away 1 load of laundry daily, make bed, bring their dirty laundry to the laundry room.

Curly/Baldy Girl: Dishes once a day (wash or dry), make bed, and bring dirty laundry to laundry room.

Diva: Dishes once a day with CG (wash or dry), make bed, and bring dirty laundry to laundry room, and plan and prepare a meal once a week.

Please pray that we are able to continue this time and follow through.
