Somehow one, single day can make the difference in a tidy house and a pig-sty. I didn’t tidy up yesterday evening, and truly — if we had been ransacked by robbers while we were at church this morning — you couldn’t tell.

However, David came up with the ultimate bribe. Forget obedience and cajoling, the promise of ice cream was enough to get our team into gear and the house tidied!

After lunch, everyone contributed to tidying the house and then we celebrated our accomplishment with ice cream!
