Encouragement for the Journey

Don’t worry about your child’s grade. Just let em’ do the best that they can each day. Children grow intellectually as they do physically, in spurts. Although we may have an audience of skeptical relatives, educating at home is not a circus, and we refuse to train our children to do tricks for people.

Daily Routine 3 July, 2008

Filed under: Routines — weefay @ 12:48 pm



Do you have a plan for each day? If you have children, a routine is a must!  Life is made so much more difficult by not having one.  Finding ones rhythm can be challenging at first, this is especially true for us who’s own mama’s did not equip us with the necessary tools.

 I did not have a childhood with chores or routines.  My dear mama believed kids needed to be kids and enjoy much freedom.  No chores were served up…nope not even our own rooms were cleaned by those who dwelled there.  I never did my own laundry till I was a teenager…for shame.  For us grown-ups that “enjoyed” such a leisure childhood such as mine know all to well that they have been “handicapped” by a lack of discipline in the domestics from an early age.

If you have yet to find a routine that works for you, do not despair; I will share more as this day allows; however I will end here since I have a few “to-do’s” this morning to accomplish.

Take care~
