Things I find in the trash can...

Beckett is very proud of his 2 new chores: putting things in the trash can and feeding the us doggies.  

Jon would say that letting Beck feed us dogs is a chore for him. For some reason, everytime Beckett helps Jon feed us, dog food ends up all over the kitchen floor.  (Not when Emma does it though...she's just better I guess...)  

I guess that Emma has a little bit of a harder time keeping up with the trash can thing.  "Why do we have to teach kids how to do things, anyways!" she says.  We find so many odd things in the trash can these days.  Searching around the house all day for that "thing" you can't remember what you did with it?  Yeh, it's in the trash can.  Here are some things we've found in our trash can recently that are definitely NOT trash:  

Sippy Cup
Iron down curtain hem
Van keys (!)
Socks
Various toys

Why in the world did we teach him to do this?  What do YOU find in your trash can these days? Hopefully just trash.

PS-the picture is of the boys at the park last week on one of those beautiful weather days that we had here.  There's a walking trail and lake and the boys had a blast.
