Usually when someone needs to vacuum the house, Asher goes outside or hides in his room because he doesn't like the noise the vacuum makes. Of course, we have long believed that Asher's issue with loud noises is not the noise itself but the fact that he's not in control of loudspeakers in the grocery store or other people flushing the toilets at Target or all those other noises he dislikes. Well, in the category of evidence for that theory, yesterday Rachel vacuumed the house. For most of the task, Ash went outside to jump on the trampoline and then came in and played in his room. Finally when he asked if she was done she said she just needed to do the living room unless he wanted to do it. And he jumped right on it. She said he was very intent and also had a great time! And when she called to tell me (actually he called to tell me but it was a little hard to understand him), she was excited to say that she even managed to take pictures.
Asher (with Rachel's help) also made some pumpkin scones yesterday. Aren't the beautiful?
