It’s important for moms to recognize that all the small successes in our days can add up to one big triumph. So on Thursday of each week, we do exactly that.
I am immersed in several projects and chores which, when all completed, will give me about four or five successes to write about. 😉 So today I’m focusing on one big item (for me) that has occupied my mind for weeks and now it’s finally in practice.
I wrote up a schedule for my big boys and managed to have activities for them to do each morning for about an hour or so. It’s usually coloring-related, but this way we keep up with Trooper’s fine motor skills goals, and Rascal gets to work in a kindergarten workbook, which he really enjoys.
I enjoyed the relief from school for about a week, then I realized just how important it was to have things on hand for them. I’m working on implementing this into our homeschool for Trooper’s sake mainly, but the extra organization will tremendously help Rascal as well. So while I don’t have the boxes yet, I’m already setting their summer assignments aside in an organized fashion and teaching the boys to only keep these things on their “school shelf.”
So there we have it folks! Hope you all are keeping cool (especially if y’all are down South like me), and have a great weekend!
