Finishing Up the Year – Getting Organized

Getting Organized:
In your home and homeschool

We have a few days left in the year. Use today and tomorrow to do some of the projects you wanted to do around the house over Christmas break. I want you to have fun this weekend without thinking about these projects. So use your timer and see what you can accomplish. I know Christmas break always looks so long and inviting, and then, suddenly, it’s time to start back to school. Do something fun today, too. Don’t be all work and no play. Use your fun activity as a reward for working on your project. Adults deserve rewards, too!

Start planning your New Year’s Eve celebration for your family. Even if your children are young, and everyone goes to bed well before midnight, you can still celebrate and have a “countdown” to the New Year. We like to have snacks and play games on New Year’s Eve.

Have a wonderful day!
