I should have known when Griffin came to the pantry and said the boys needed "art supplies" that something was happening, as Griffin does NOT do art projects. But i just wrote it off that Coleman was being a good influence and encouraging Griffin to be artistic! HA HA HA HA HA!! Two boys, artistic . . . not gonna happen!
This is how they appeared about 5 minutes later . . .
Quite innocent, right? Well, Carolyn and Molly took one look at this and got ideas for themselves, and this is what happened while i cooked dinner, proof that kids will feed off each other and make matters MUCH worse all on their own . . . i will mention, that after the meager painting shown above, i did verify that they were all using WASHABLE crayola markers instead of NONwashable. For those of you not-knowing - washable will come off with baby wipes. NONwashable, do not!!
The Gang . . . Final Product
I will also note that after these pictures were taken and before we started UNfacepainting everyone, the girls did, in fact, add to what you see here. All 4 ended up having to take a bath and scrub with wash cloths because 25 babywipes each, just simply did not do the job.
BUT, another great way to pass the time . . . put on your bathing suits and shower and take a bath together. That's what the poor-folk who can't afford a pool just yet do!
All children were in bed by 9:45. Asleep by 11pm. I thought the boys might have to be separated as they just couldn't settle down, but hey, it's spring break, so who cares! This is what memories are made of!
