All In A Day-The Sunday Morning Rush

Sunday mornings are like many mornings in my home. Any time we have somewhere to go early in the morning; whether it is history co-op, church or a field trip we work as a team to get out of the house in a timely manner. 

My older children are great with getting their chores done and my lovely oldest daughter will often get up extra early to make muffins for a snack or pack sandwiches for our outings. I often purchase cold cereal for Sunday Mornings, the only day we eat cold cereal, or we will eat something simple like yogurt and toast.

My handsome oldest son is usually pretty quick to get ready so he will often help by dressing and changing our baby, who is 2. I always pick out the clothing for the 2 and 4 year olds, but I often get help from one of my 3 oldest to get them dressed. I question them on tooth care and check faces and hair and then make sure the house is reasonably tidy before we leave. Our living room stays pretty clean and my sweet second daughter is great about getting the kitchen cleaned up, but I do really struggle to get my room and bathroom clean before we leave, I would rather make myself look pretty than my bathroom as I leave the house!

 We have never lived very close to the church we attend and usually use the 30 minutes on our way to church to wind down and maybe listen to some worship music as we drive. With seven children our family is small compared to many, but we like going places together and I love that it is so easy to get out of the house.

  1. I agree, a task that may look daunting to many, like getting everyone out of the house on time :) is not that difficult with lots of helpers. Team work is an essential thing in a large family!
