I think for me the hardest thing to do is to get back on schedule after an interruption.
My husband is back at work as of yesterday (praise God he was allowed to return to his full duties). I realized right away that not only had we gotten way off track with school, chores, etc., but our schedule needs an overhaul! The way we were doing things is not working well any more.
So, today my goal is to revise the schedule so that things flow a little better around here and we get more done each day and I spend less time delegating activities and more time on the necessities.
My first goal is to get new copies of my girls Morning and Bedtime lists printed out. I had these hanging in their room and 2 year old was able to reach them so they are now lost. Those needed to be re-done anyhow. I am also going to make each child a daily plan and print that out so they can view it at a glance so there's no question as to what they need to be doing at any given time. 7 and 9 year old can read theirs on their own but I will probably add some cute icons or something for 4 year old. 2 year old is along for the ride with me so she doesn't need a chart :0)
After I get those charts done, I am going to revise our block schedule.
Finally, I found this neat list of "House Rules" on the Duggar Family website and I am going to print that out and hang that up too. We recently put up a neat little wall of pictures the kids drew for a lesson on The Fruits of The Spirit and that project really seemed to help them remember the scripture as well and instilling in them the meaning of it so I think this will be a good visual for them as well which I am hoping will help out some with all the little arguments that pop up during the day. I'm also hoping to find some more scriptures with pictures on-line that I can hang up around the house. My girls are very visual learners so I know this will help them to remember and apply the scriptures to their daily lives.
I'll be posting the new schedule, etc. tomorrow. Praying your day is blessed!
