Laundry in the summer!
I love laundry in the summer time. A few months ago I did a post about LAUNDRY and that I enjoy it. As you can see I like to hang some of our laundry outside to dry.I do this for several reasons....like the way laundry dried in the sun smells. It also helps with the electric bill, by cutting back on the amount of times the dryer is ran. Last but not least it keeps the color of the clothes looking newer longer. I know this to be a fact, Wesley is wearing some of Madison's clothes. These are clothes that are 10 years old and have now been worn by all 6 of our boys. I'm thankful boys styles don't change like girls! If, you wonder what I do in the winter well, I hang the clothes on drying racks and hangers in the house. It makes for a messy look so I try to hang the clothes before bed at night, in hopes it will be dry by morning. Often times people ask us how can afford to have 9 kids. Most of the time we just let them know we try to be good stewards with what the LORD has given us.....even down to the clothes/laundry. I still like to be the one who washes the clothes and hangs them out to dry. Elizabeth and Amanda help fold the laundry. Rebekah helps gather the dry laundry and she now irons! She really enjoys ironing and what a wonderful blessing that is for me. I think Rebekah may have my gift of laundry...I still question is that a spiritual gift? LOL Everyone is responsible for putting his or her own laundry away. Well, today I've done 4 loads and still have some to go....from the week end, and with Arthur and Madison going to camp it's gotten me behind. So, off to more laundry :)
