Getting Organized this Summer – Week 1 Day 2

Today I want you to work on your morning routine. You can see from your Home assignment below that we are working toward instilling the habit of a Morning and Before Bed Routine. These two routines make my days go so much better. I recommend you do the Before Bed Routine right after dinner.


The first thing I want you to do this morning is fill your water bottle. Try to drink 60 ounces of water today.



Tuesday – Set your timer for 15 minutes for the Home Assignment and 15 minutes for the School assignment


Home:  Make your bed when you get up. Shine your sink.

School: Pull books from your bookshelf that you no longer need. Put them in a box to give away. Put the box in the car.

(If this is your first year, read about Charlotte Mason and nature journaling.)

Family Fun:         Play some water games outside with your children.




The goal this week is to sort through your books and make room for next year’s books. Take it slow and steady. Set the timer for 15 minutes, and after the buzzer goes off, do a different task. You are going to organize your books in small steps. That will help keep you from burning out on doing a big project at one time.


I am giving you ideas for summer fun with your kids because I know a lot of you try to get a lot of things accomplished in the summer. You need to work in fun and rewards, too.
