I don’t homeschool, but I know many of you do. I thought this email conversation I had with one of you recently might encourage some who are in this unique situation that presents its own challenges. My favorite part is seeing how focusing on the basics naturally produces energy and inspiration to tackle the bigger things!
P.S. I’m behind on email. If you’ve emailed me and I haven’t responded, I’m so sorry. Life has been crazy lately!

Thank you! I have been doing that this week and I can’t believe the difference! We’ve scratched ‘chores’ for the kids this week and I set a timer for 5 minutes and everyone just helps clean up! It’s working like a charm! Last night I was sweeping after the kids went to bed. My husband was looking at me all funny and he said “I don’t think I’ve ever seen you sweep before…..” I just laughed! Thank you for your inspiration! I’ve even tackled the kids rooms this week and gotten rid of 5 bags of clothes! :O Our bedroom is next… I can’t wait to make it a haven instead of a place of chaos! Thank you again! I’ve really been enjoying reading your blog backwards.
