Making Your Bed Daily to Help You Start Your Day

Getting Organized:
In your home and homeschool


Dear Friends,
Happy April! It’s the beginning of a new month, and we will practice a new Habit of the Month. We are going to make our beds first thing each morning. Some of you have been doing this already, but if you are not making your bed daily, start today.
When I get up in morning, the first thing I do is to make my side of the bed. I pull the covers and fluff my pillow while my husband is still asleep on his side of the bed. When he gets up, he makes his side of the bed. That’s it! It makes me happy to see my bed made when I walk into my room. Once a week, I wash my sheets and remake the bed.
We will have a full week in Zone 1. You will be able to spend time in each area daily. If you need to switch things around, you have the freedom to do that.
Zone 1 Missions: The Front Porch, Entryway, and Dining Room
Monday – Declutter & Sweep the Front Porch
Tuesday – Declutter in the Entryway
Wednesday – Declutter in the Dining Room
Thursday – Detail Dust the Dining Room
Friday – Detail Sweep & Mop or Vacuum the Entryway
Set your timers and then take a break when it goes off!

As you practice the habit of making your bed daily, teach your children to do the same. Do not expect a perfect job. Resist the urge to remake their beds. Let them practice this habit and do the best they can do.

Practicing these habits will help you move along faster each morning toward starting your homeschool day.

Your Home Blessing for today is to wash the sheets.

Your Zone Mission for today is to declutter and sweep the Front Porch.

My menu plan for Monday is chicken and dumplings and veggies.

Have a blessed day!
