Chores!!!

With school coming up, we have been spending a lot of time getting ready for that. But I also have been working on chore lists for everyone in the house. Hopefully we can get some good habits established, and keep the house from being destroyed this year once school starts - yes, its a crazy dream, but its my crazy dream.

Here is what I have worked out for the kids so far - too much? Not enough? I don't know. I'd love your input. And just so you know, Fridays we don't do school. We will be doing school with Abby 4 days a week, and on those days we will just do "maintenance" around the house. On Fridays it will be much more intensive cleaning, so that on the weekend we can get to experience a nice time to relax, do the minimum, and spend time focusing on family and faith. So, please keep that in mind when suddenly you see below that on Fridays I am torturing my eldest child, haha. Will however, is going to do school work 5 days a week and his same chores 5 days a week (since his chores only consist of pick up your toys basically....haha). His school is basically 15 minutes, so I think while Abby and I focus on our work, we can manage to do 15 minutes of school with him on Friday. =o)
