MPM & Monday Meanderings

A busy week ahead! This week we’ll finish up studying for Princess’ test on Friday, getting ready for the holiday weekend with family, working on our monthly organizational challenge, making a few appointments, going over to my mother-in-law’s to get some sewing done and participating in a homeschool family picnic. Phew!


1.) Bible Study: Morning devotions using this site to study my bible chronologically. (I ordered a new devotional bible, though and it should be here this week!)

2.) “MUST Do” List:

  • Stick to my daily schedule (as God allows) for morning devotions, taking care of the home and home-schooling. Working on organizational challenge in between.
  • Appointment on Tuesday, then sewing at MIL’s.
  • Picnic on Friday, then Princess’ assessment test in the afternoon.
  • Early Memorial Day dinner here at our house on Sunday.
  • Iron Big Daddy’s clothes for each day, as a labor of love.

3.) Taking Care of My Home:

Daily Chores and then focus on these areas for weekly chores (I’m working out a new system for laundry since giving the girls their own hampers and teaching them to wash their laundry – this week we’ll try it this way):

  • Monday – Kitchen; Wash towels, tablecloths, etc.
  • Tuesday – Dining Room; The girls wash and put away their own laundry.
  • Wednesday – Living Room; Wash Momma’s laundry. Little Prince helps wash and put away his laundry.
  • Thursday – Master Bedroom; Wash all bed sheets, put them back on the beds.
  • Friday – Kids’ Rooms; Wash Big Daddy’s laundry & Whites
  • Saturday – Bathrooms; Clean Up Yard/Car

4.) Training My Children:

  • Daily basics for Drama Queen.
  • Review for 2nd grade assessment test for Princess.
  • Tuesday we’ll make our bar graphs.
