A New Month and a New Habit

Getting Organized:
In your home and homeschool

Dear Friends,

Happy first day of March! Today we start practicing the Habit of Getting Dressed down to the Shoes each morning. For some of you, this Habit is well established. For others, you are working on it.

When I wrote about this topic last week, I received a lot of comments about the part about wearing shoes in the house. Some of you have a problem with wearing the same shoes inside of your home that you wear in public. Invest in a pair of shoes that is just for indoor wearing.

Some of you do not wear shoes inside of your home because it is not a part of your culture. I would still suggest you have something on your feet. Things are dropped and broken in our homes frequently. Having something on your feet will give you some protection.

Each evening, spend a few minutes checking the calendar and weather for the next day. Then, lay your clothes out for the next day. Ask your children to do the same thing. If your clothes are ready to put on first thing in the morning, it is much faster and easier to get dressed. If you have to pick out your clothes in the morning, it is easier to procrastinate getting dressed in the morning.

I want to hear from you about your Morning Routine and homeschool schedule. What are your struggles?

Today’s Zone Mission is to declutter in Zone 1. Declutter and Sweep the Front Porch.

Your Home Blessing for today is to declutter paper and magazines.

My menu plan for Thursday is chicken and a salad.

Have a great day!
