In your home and homeschool
Your questions and comments encourage me and give me ideas for my writing, so keep it up! A few of you have told me that you don’t wear lace up shoes around the house. You have lots of reasons why, but I want you to consider putting your lace up shoes on every morning for one week. Then, tell me how you feel at the end of the week.
Putting your shoes on your feet first thing in the morning signals your brain that it is time to be productive. Lace up shoes give your feet and body good support. If something comes up, you can leave the house quickly if you have your shoes on your feet. If your child breaks something, your feet are safer in shoes. I could go on and on about the reasons why you should put your lace up shoes on first thing in the morning.
I have several pairs of lace up shoes. Some of them are my running shoes. Then, I have two pair that I rotate for daily wear and walking. Shoes last longer if you rotate them. They have time to dry out and spring back up if you wear them every other day instead of the same pair every day.
Children need to wear their shoes daily, too. I know I will get some eye rolls from a few of you on this point. They can have indoor shoes and outdoor shoes. We live in the woods. The boys have learned to clean their shoes off before they come into the house. Several times of being asked to sweep up behind themselves have helped them develop the habit of wiping their feet before they come into the house.
It’s anti-procrastination day, and if you have been putting off this habit, I want you to start it as soon as you finish reading this.
Your Zone Mission today is to clean out the fridge.
Your Home Blessing for today is to wipe your windows and mirrors.
My menu plan for Wednesday is pasta and a salad for the boys. Grilled chicken and a salad for me.
Have a great day!
