Today's New Skill

Today we learned how to wash the cars! One brother was the indoor window washer and the other was the vinyl cleaner. Then we did the outsides with a new funny scrubber. Next time we'll graduate to vacuuming out the interiors. And, in case you were wondering, we will pay them for this "above and beyond" chore.

I enjoy investing time and money into teaching the kids new skills in a fun way. It will be so nice to someday ask them to go wash the cars and then have them do it. I try to speak slowly and patiently teach them how to do each part and then walk them through it before they launch. We will practice repeatedly through the hot summer! What new skills have you taught your children recently? Please share your inspiration and ideas!
