As we begin the new year, I set up some new goals to help our home run smoothly. Writing as an indie author takes even more time than my part time job did. The difference is that I’m home with the girls.
One of the things I did was to set up a fair schedule for household chores. We all take turns feeding the outdoor pets, taking out the trash, doing laundry, and washing dishes. Before, we tried simply taking care of the dishes as we used them. That flopped when we were super busy and running out the door right after a meal. The new method has been in place for two weeks now and seems to be working.
The chore method isn’t the only new thing this year. TheShi is working on Chemistry with Switched on Schoolhouse curriculum. She’s adjusting to the different learning style much better than our oldest did.
Stay tuned for next week’s post on our literasure selections for the school year. I would like to share book reviews and our experiences with each as we finish them during the school year. It’s good to be back!
