Happy Independence Day!

Getting Organized:
In your Home and Homeschool 
 

Dear Friends,
Happy Independence Day, friends! Today I want you to keep your missions and routines short and sweet. I don’t want you to neglect to do them, but see how quickly you can get through your routines.
First thing, you need to put away your phone and computer. Both of these can be a distraction while you are doing your routines.
Next, turn on some music and set your timer. If you are dependent on your phone for these, don’t check email or social media. Just set these and move into your routines.
What I have seen with myself and my children, is that we sometimes fall in the habit of checking our phones during our routines, and it takes much longer to do them.
Today’s goal is to do them quickly and then enjoy the rest of the day with your family. Check your local listings to see what’s going on around you.
For those of you who live in North Carolina, it’s free fishing day. You don’t need a fishing license to fish on the 4th of July.
Other fun things to do for the 4th of July is to have a cookout or go on a picnic. One year, we went to the mountains and enjoyed a picnic and playing in a cold creek.
Many areas will have fireworks tonight. Check out a local place for your family to enjoy the fireworks.
Your Zone Mission today is to do a quick dust in the Living Room.
Your Home Blessing for today is to toss paper and magazines.
My menu plan for Thursday is leftovers.
Have a blessed day!
