Celebrating Holidays

Getting Organized:
In Your Home and Homeschool

Dear Friends,

Many of you are in the midst of a long weekend with the 4th of July coming tomorrow. You have probably had a cookout (or you will be having one) and relaxed your routines. That is okay. Your routines are not a straight-jacket. They are there to give you freedom to have fun.
Enjoy this Holiday with your family. Invite friends or family over to your home.
Pack up a picnic and go on an adventure. Look for events in your town. Many have parades and celebrations going on. Check to see where there will be a fireworks display.
You can make homemade ice cream and have water games at home. It does not have to be complicated.
This is a time to make memories and enjoy your family.
Talk about WHY we celebrate Independence Day every year. Start a tradition to do something to commemorate the Holiday. You are tying heart strings when you do this.
A little over a month ago my son was in a terrible car accident. Since then, I have had friends lose their young adult children. I have had friends whose child was in a terrible car accident like my son. I am grateful for each day with my family. I do not take the time we have together for granted.
My routines help me have peace, and they allow me to enjoy Holidays and have fun with my family.
Your Zone Mission today is to declutter and sweep the front porch.
Your Home Blessing for today is to wash sheets.
My menu plan for Monday is paella (Spanish version of chicken and rice with a few other things, too.).
Have a great day!
