It’s been a little bit since my last blog post as my husband is officially on deployment #5. The last week was very intense for us and we are grateful that he has safely made it to his destination 🙂 We love and miss him dearly and are already counting down the days until his return! Now on to today’s post.
You may remember recently I had blogged about scheduling and how in our current state it was driving me crazy 🙂 Since then, we purchased Managers Of Their Chores AND Managers Of Their Homes. After reading Managers Of Their Chores, we were able to successfully create and implement our Master Chore List. Last week was our first “trial run” using our chore packs. Chore packs, are simply “packs” made for each child with their expected chores inside of them. This gives the child clear expectations of what they have to do that day, and also gives the parents a tangible way to keep track of everything. I have used the “keep-track-of-everything-in-your-head” method; and believe me, it’s not all it’s cracked up to be!
Here is what our chore packs look like:
