Summer is definitely our busiest season. We just love the outdoors and can’t get enough. Between camping, boating, picnicking, swimming, BMX, and just enjoying ourselves, I just can’t get ahead of the game.
Emily has been at Horse Camp this past week. She is such a big help to me. She is really good at doing what I ask her to, and she is such a help with Katey and Tyler. I really missed her this week, and it just went to show me how much I actually rely on her.
On top of all this stuff, I have been doing a total revamp of our household. I have been deep cleaning one room a day, and noting all the daily, weekly, etc, chores. Hopefully this will help us keep up on household things.
I have made a “mommy book”, a planner, and all things that I need at a glance. Basically a big personalized planner. I used The Old Schoolhouse Planner 2010-2011 for that. Which I love by the way.
I have revamped my filing crate. Which is an extension of my “mommy book”.
I have rearranged our workboxes. (which will be coming up in another post)
I have decided on a school schedule. (also in an upcoming post)
As you can see, I have let some things go in order to accomplish these things, mainly blogging, and we have lightened our schoolwork load during this.
I really feel as if this will help our school and household run much more smoothly this coming school year. I am so excited that I am beginning to feel under control. So watch for my upcoming posts on how I organized it all.
