Daily Chores/Routine

Hey kiddos! Momma here, I know that we’ve had some crazy times right now and things have been a little weird having so many people in the house who normally aren’t there but we really do need our routines now more than ever. Momma is posting this schedule here so that everyone can find it in the event that all of the many copies at home get misplaced… <wink, wink>

Our routines help to keep everyone and everything running smoothly. We’ve seen just how crazy things can get when Momma isn’t around to direct the flow of traffic and everyone decides to just do their own thing… it wasn’t pretty!
