I expect my boys to help out around the house. Their regular chores are to keep their rooms cleaned up and put away their laundry. But occasionally I ask a bit more. Last week, as we were preparing for their Daddy to return home after a 4 month deployment (as a civilian contractor), I made a list of all the chores that needed to be done. The boys and I worked our way through the list. They loved that they got to choose which chore to do, and they felt important to the process. I loved watching them contribute to our home. For a moment I stopped and watched in wonder at these two boys. They are getting so big, and learning such important lessons along the way!
