Fall Friday – Getting Organized

Getting Organized:
In your home and homeschool

Let’s take some time today to enjoy the Fall and have some fun while were are at it. If the leaves are falling at your house, take some time to go rake leaves and play in them with your children. Make it a game, and you will get some yard maintenance done and have fun, too. If the leaves haven’t fallen yet, you can ask the children to pick up sticks and make a pile. Maybe you can have a bonfire this week-end and roast hot dogs and marshmallows. We have a field trip today, so we did our Home Blessings yesterday. I bought hot dogs and buns on my shopping trip, so we are having a hot dog roast in the evening.


ZONE Focus: Master Bedroom – Today I want you to declutter some clothes and shoes from your closet. It can be ass few as five things, but maybe you can declutter more than that in 15 minutes. Set your timer and see what you can do! Ask your children to bring you any clothes that don’t fit them and shoes they have outgrown.


  • Make Your Bed (Do this as soon as you get up.)
  • Get Dressed Down to Your Shoes
