Matthew and I are really excited to be home and be with our family! We have missed them a lot! We have especially missed all of our nieces and nephews! Matthew is such a kid himself that all the children naturally gravitate to him. In Samoa the kids in the village would come around regularly asking if Matthew could come and play. It's no different now that we're home. The kids all love Matthew!
I have recently learned a recipe - don't worry, it's not rocket science - put matthew together with a bunch of little kids and some ruff housing and you have a perfect mess :) But when you see those adorable faces (Matthew included) how can you deny them the fun. So, instead of making Matthew act his age I'm making carpet cleaner.
1 tb dish soap
1/4 c vinegar
2 c distilled water
3 drops each of lemon, lavender, and tea tree essential oils
1 cup soda water
Mix everything but the soda water together in a bottle. Then add the soda water and put the lid on tight. To use on carpets just shake and apply.
