Afternoon chore time is never a favorite around our house. School may be finished, but our small space and not so small family means we need to get things back to "ground zero" before we move on to free time. The bigs (aka the two oldest) have a room assigned to pick up with the middles helping with toys and such.
Today I saw one child sitting on the couch. As I walked by I said, "Sitting on the couch is not the same as picking up."
Before that child could move the one assigned to the room said, "Amen."
