Wednesday is the new Tuesday

Okay, between the work around the house and the babies and RCN's less than stellar Internet connection, my plan to post yesterday went up in smoke. We have had a crazy first week here in Chevy Chase (did the actor get his name from us?) filled with more painting, some cleaning, and a little yard work. Fortunately our new neighborhood is chock full of wonderful, helpful, motivated children.

Five such children have started a local business called C.A.R.E.S. and they rake the lawns of lazy people on our street. They found an easy mark in me--two babies and a new house to play with--so I hired them to do the real dirty work around here. We also happen to have the largest lot on the block, so they really had their work cut out for them. Thank you Claire, Abby, Rachel, Emma and Suzannah, without your hard work I would have been the new neighbor with the messy yard.

Without further ado, here are some pictures of the outside of our new house (the inside isn't quite neat enough yet) with a smattering of babies and helpful neighbors.

new house. Looks so cuter and cozy, with plenty of room for a veggie garden. Bt, it looks a bit cold there. Time for a trip to New Zealand!

the rakers are adorable, and it looks like they will be of babysitting age before too long . . .
