Giving Your Children a Legacy of Habits and Routines

Getting Organized:
In your home and homeschool

Dear Friends,

Are you setting the example in your home and getting dressed first thing in the morning? As you establish this habit, encourage your children to move along with their morning routine as well. When my children were little, I made it a point to be dressed before they got up. Sometimes it was hard. Sometimes it did not happen. For the most part, I was successful!
Then I taught my children the following routine:
  • Get up
  • Go potty
  • Wash hands
  • Go to the kitchen table for breakfast
  • Brush teeth
  • Wash hands and face
  • Get dressed
  • Make bed
They still follow this routine, and they are much older now, though don’t tell them I mentioned the potty thing. (smile) Give your children a legacy of habits and routines!
This week we are decluttering and detail cleaning in the main bathroom and one extra room. Pick the area in your home that needs to be decluttered the most. For some of you, it might be your school area.
Zone 3 Missions: The Main Bathroom and One Extra Room
Monday – Declutter the counter tops and wipe down
Tuesday – Declutter items from under the sink
Wednesday – Declutter from the medicine cabinet
Thursday – Mop the bathroom
Friday – Detail clean the tub/shower
Set your timers and then take a break when it goes off!
Keep decluttering daily and celebrate your successes! Be sure to take off the items you are donating and get them out of your house completely!
Your Home Blessing for today is to wash the sheets.

Your Zone Mission for today is to declutter the bathroom counters and wipe them down.

My menu plan for Monday is taco soup.

Have a blessed day!
