Homeschooling, as with everything in life, has its pros and cons.
This homeschool lifestyle is working well for our family in many ways.
One sacrifice which I weekly must come to peace with is that the house is simply not going to be the picture of neat and clean. And the entire house is never clutter-free and clean all at the same time.
That's just the way it is.
Also, I need everyone's help to keep the home in order.
So this morning before everyone left for their activities I had the family gather for a fire drill.
Fire drill? It's when we set the timer for 20 minutes, or even 10 minutes, and I give everyone a simple chore. Yes, daddy and I help too and we check that the kids chores were done correctly.
The saying is so true. . . Many hands make light work.
In 20 minutes many chores were completed: vacuuming, clothes folded, mud room picked up, garbage out, floors mopped, bedrooms picked up.
It was a great way to start the day.
How about a fire drill at your home today?
