Colorful Solutions

So The Boy can no longer lounge about until I’ve asked him for the 18923776th time to get ready for the day…

We sat down and created a list of self care responsibilities that must be completed upon waking and before breakfast.

We also outlined regular weekly activities so that when an opportunity arises we can look for conflicts easily.  And of course we made it a fun and colorful art project as well with snipping and pasting and stickers.

The Complete Calendar
Weekdays planned with regular activities…
The Boy’s personal calendar – ‘His Idea!’ he says

I  try to squeeze as much writing in to his days as possible – as you can see we’ve got a long way to go with legibility 😉

The Boy wanted to ensure he would’t forget the days of the week OR how many of them there were 😉

He decided he also needed a monthly calendar to outline special days throughout the coming month!

The Boy’s plan for Saturday the 29th

Another colorful and crafty project we did this past week was a math chart.  It is helping The Boy understand number placement and more!  Plus it just makes checking our math so much more interesting 🙂

Becoming AWESOME

I want to be awesome.

Wether that’s to my husband and children or to a community….

I want to be a person that they say,
‘Oh her?’
‘Yea she’s awesome, isn’t she!’
‘She created this from the ground up!’

I want to fulfill a purpose. Sometimes my purpose involves going back to school. At times my calling seems to be just to work my butt off to pay for what the future may hold. And yet at other times, I swear I’m being called to draft a few like minded friends to drop everything, take up farming and live communally….

I feel like I need a plan. A plan to be awesome!

Is there anyone who can say they successfully balance all their ‘purposes’? Give focus to one goal and it always seems to eventually lead to slack with another goal. Do successful people learn how to leave bits of the goal buffet off their plates?

The Man loves to tell me everyone feels conflicted in their twenties…
I’m hoping that it’s a growing thing too…
If I continue to force upon myself competing achievements that one day I’ll magically have them all under my belt with hands to spare…
Like by 30. I think 30 is going to be an awesome year. And I’m just going to keep that envisioned awesome mojo going until it happens!
