"Common Ground": my little corner of the blogosphere where I talk (a lot-wink) about the things that matter most to me: My relationship with my Lord & Savior, Jesus Christ, homeschooling, adoption, homemaking, parenting, "spousing." (yeah, yeah....I know that's not a word.....I made it up-it’s my blog-I can do things like that! Ha!)

Since my life isn’t all that different from yours, hopefully we can find some COMMON GROUND & learn from each other. Please share your thoughts!

Through the Lords’s mercies we are not consumed, Because His compassions fail not.

They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness!
Lam. 3: 22 & 23

Chore Time!

This summer, I am trying something new. Chore packs. Each child has a job(s) to do before & after each meal. Their jobs are listed on 3 x 5 cards like what you see above. Ruth & Nat have pictures of each chore. They are all laminated. We are still filling up marble jars, too. Each chore gets one marble.

Chores are so important for kids to be involved in. For one thing, I think it helps them take ownership in the family. Can you think of other reasons?

(sorry this post is all wonky w/ spa cing. Trying to post from my phone again!)

Cool! You used the Maxwell's idea!
This is on my radar for the future as well.
The system makes so much sense.
