haha... that's us.
After the holidays, I wanted to get our home in gear, I wanted to make it more efficient and more pleasant. Order helps.
So I made up a simple schedule of each one's duties for each day of the school week. On top of normal chores, grooming, homeschool lessons...
One day a week, Cameo and Eli are together in charge for supper. They planned their menu, they made sure we had what we needed and today they prepared the meal.
I have mentioned before, I can be quite controlling in the kitchen, but I am doing my best to loosen my grips and allow the kids to get their hands involved.
I know with my kids, they LOVE to cook, and I believe when you allow them to get involved they will try harder and enjoy and appreciate it more!
It was a lovely table, everyone was so proud.
While the kids worked on supper and I supervised, I had a bit of freedom to tarry about the kitchen, working, rearranging and cleaning.
I moved some things around and pulled an industrial shelf into the dining area. My kitchen/dining room is rather large now, but I have VERY little storage space. I felt that if I pulled this shelf in and put things in a tidy manner, an open shelf would work well.
Happy kitchen times.
Enjoying and appreciating the new and the old.
May your day be blessed friends!
