Majestic Monday

When you think of the word “Majestic” what comes to mind? For me, it makes me think of the Majesty of God. With that in mind, let’s have a great day taking care of ourselves and our family. Today is Labor Day, so I am taking today to have a Family Fun day. We will do our normal routines, but we are going to have a day of play, too. We all work very hard, and it is important to take time for fun and enjoyment of life with our family. What does your family like to do? We like doing things outside, so our fun day will involve a lot of time outside.

My weekly schedule will look different this week, so I will be flexible. My Weekly Home Blessings can be spread out over the week, and I can do one or two of them per day. I already scheduled the day off from school, so I won’t feel behind on our lessons. My menu plan and shopping are done for the week, so I won’t feel behind on that either. By planning ahead and knowing that I have my regular stuff covered I can enjoy the day of playing with my children. Childhood passes so quickly, and I want to take advantage of play time with them as often as I can.

What can you do to enjoy your family today?
