We started our school year yesterday!! Martin started 3rd grade, Aaron started 1st grade, and Jonathan started pre-school. I'll give more details about what I am doing with each each of them later this week.
I am super excited to be back to school. I love, love, LOVE routine. I thrive on routine and my children do as well.
So, along with starting school this week, we have instituted two new things into our morning routine. I started chore bags and family quiet time.
You can go to this blog to read about Chore packs. I copied the idea from her blog.
It is a great system - and it helps the children learn to be responsible without me chasing them around all morning telling them what to do. Win-Win!!!
Our Family Quiet Time starts with Rich reading us a passage from the Bible - then we all sit down with our own Bible Basket and read our Bible's together. We do this for about 15 minutes before we start our school day. The two little ones who are not reading yet have Bible board books, Bible coloring books, and Bible picture books in their baskets.
