We have a schedule for schooling, a schedule for chores, a schedule for food prep and a schedule for outside activities. They are pretty too, all color coded. :) I simplified and prioritized. Prayer, school, food, chores, outside fun/enrichment. Each schedule is working well so far. The parts come together to make a very nice whole.
I miss my big boys so much. I keep thinking those were golden days when they were all young and under my roof. I like the men they have become and I wouldn't want my grown men hanging around not making their own lives. They are finishing their education and formation at an amazing college. The boys and the college have expanded our world. And we are gifted with all new golden days here at home. We are humming along nicely.
Rebecca takes Alex pictures for me so I know he is alive and well :) Occasionally the boys even call!
