(This is not the best picture but neither the kids or the dog were cooperative. You get the idea.)
The kids were also asked to bring in the mail and paper and water the three pots of flowers outside. They've decided to take turns doing the different jobs (hopefully not fighting about who's turn it is to do what). With a little parental supervision this should be a good little job for them.
The dog is really old. The owners left a note on the table saying if she dies to "call this number and they'll take care of it". I sincerely hope this doesn't happen on our watch.
