Routine - here I come!

School is starting back for us on Monday so this week we are easing back into a routine.  Easing back into routine actually makes it so exciting for us.  My kids think they want to start back full force but I know from experience that is not something we can do successfully.

We bought new markers, crayons, folders, and backpacks this week.  The excitement builds.  Today, they actually pulled out the old colored pencils (because they can't have the new until Monday :) and printed coloring sheets.  We even made sock puppets to go along with a Speekee review we will have coming up soon.  

I too - must ease back into routine.  I'm starting first by going to bed 10 minutes earlier and waking 10 minutes earlier until I'm no longer zombie like when I wake and then I'll move back 5 more minutes until I reach my ultimate wake-up time.  

To help me with that I'm again joining the Hello Mornings girls where we will pray for one another and keep each other accountable.  I am a proud AC (Accountability Captain) of a group of ladies.  Some of us have been together for a few years now and some are brand new.  Regardless, we are all the same.  We want to spend our time - our precious, valuable time growing in our relationship with God first, then family and home.   If you haven't heard of it, you can check out the details here and join the group of over 2,500 women as we rise and shine and give God the glory!  A new fall session will begin on August 20th.  

If you don't have a group, we would love to have you.  Just link your name to our group.  We are an email group.

Coffee mugs up - and cheers!  Routine - here I come!


  1. Great idea to ease back into early mornings with earlier bedtimes. :) I'll be praying for your AM success as the challenge begins. Thanks for sharing!

    PS...My children are 9th, 7th, & 4th. :)

  2. Thank you!! It is so comforting to know that others are praying for you! So cool on the children's ages!


Thanks for stopping by - let me know that you did!
