chores and watercolors


after a rough day, i did 2 small things.  the watercolors are back in the dining room.


the chore chart is made.  they pull a slip of paper (without looking) and then do the chore on the matching color of paper. they’ve all done it a couple of times.  it is so simple.  it is so minimal.  but it is more than we had.


part of what i like about this is that all three of the kids can do these jobs.  of course i like that, we’re all doing the same thing.

  1. I’m getting to the point of wanting.needing.longing for a chore chart. Sophie is still so young and I hate the hassle and battle of getting her to pick up her toys. But the result is that I do it. Along with everything else.

    I love your chore chart. I might not implement it right away, but it’s going to nest in the back of my mind for a little while. Thanks for your (continuous) inspiration.


  2. you know what you are doing. I have witnessed it for 12 years. I need to get some paints here. They are expensive, so I was going to wait for Christmas, but I am going to go for it anyway.
