If Tom Sawyer Had Had a Pool...

If Mark Twain had installed Tom Sawyer in the 21st century, he might have had him clean the pool instead of painting the fence, and this is what the scene might have looked like:


Scrubbing the pool wall is hard...

...because you keep floating away.

But boy it looks like so much fun!

Can I PUHLEEEASE do it too?

Okay, you can have a turn, but only for a little while.

Wait! Give us back the brush!

The kids are now out of school for their summer break until the middle of January, and as you can see I'm trying hard to find jobs for them!

My kids would inevitably play monkey in the middle with the brush,I would have to break up the fight and no scrubbing would get done. Until I punished the child instigating the fighting and made him clean the pool...

Ha! that's what normally happens in our family which I guess is why I had to gloat and write this post when for once it didn't. Although in fact it did, at the end, when Zax decided to steal the brush.

The other day my two girls were fighting over who gets to hold the packet of rice while I was cooking. In the end it all spilled on the floor in a huge mess. Martina, I'll gladly send them over to you when they are at it again!
