Five Minute Friday: Small
1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.
2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
3. And then absolutely, no ifs, ands or buts about it, you need to visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them in their comments. Seriously. That is, like, the rule. And the fun. And the heart of this community...
Five minutes on small...
The summer is winding down. We are in the last week of camp. We have a zoo trip planned for the weekend with a visit to Papa's house. The kids are excited and that little bit wild that comes with it. Monday the big kids and I will spend the day together as our last hurrah of summer. School starts Tuesday.
So amidst this wild and craziness of summer, we are also getting ready for school. For routine. For schedules. For Fall. We are making small adjustments to the kids' morning routines and bedtimes routines. We've been getting back on track with chores and responsibilities.
And everytime I preach something to the kids I realize that I'm also talking to myself. I need to make these changes myself as well. I need to get back into my routines and schedule. And what works for them is what works for me; to move forward in small doses. No big, sweeping adjustments that leave everyone feel off kilter. Just little things every day that get us back into the swing of things.
Because summer is ending. School is starting. Fall will be here soon.
