My Shrinking Family

I have seven children, but last week I found myself going through a day with a couple fewer children. It was a weird and scary preview of things to come. I have come to rely so much on the help of some of these older ones and in the meantime have neglected to expect from the next few the help they are capable of giving. It was a sober reminder that today is the day to direct and disciple these children. The time goes quickly and too soon these arrows will fly.
Now is the time to train.
Top training goals for the week;
#1 Basic room care
#2 Replace belongings after use
#3 Teach them to look for ways to help
#4 Schoolwork done neatly (it gets done, but neatness could be improved)
we love being together
