Chart Jungle

Well I'm happy to say we are not sick. After a long time of being sick the world looks lovelier and greener. Now I'm waiting for the much needed rain to let up so I can do some planting. I'm so

We also just found a local dairy that sells eggs and milk for great prices. You can even bring your kids there to help with the "chores" like collecting eggs.

I also found a web site, Chart Jungle, that has a bunch of fun charts to use for homeschooling, chores, etc. ( And who can resist the name Chart Jungle.) Thought I'd share. Charts are not usually my thing, but with homeschooling I am starting to need a little more rigid schedule. I made charts from their Rainbow Chart for each of the kids. Georgie's was just for potty training. If he goes in the potty each day he gets a sticker on his chart and if he has all of them by the end of the week he gets a piece of candy on Sunday. The other kids got more responsibilities like brushing their teeth and picking up their rooms. So I showed it to George and even before I had finished explaining it to him his pants were off and he was on the potty. It was cute but sad because then I had to explain we were at the next level. He had to go all week on the potty for candy. The other kids were just as excited. Joffre went up to try to make his bed.

I'm also trying to get Easter together. I have slowly been collecting stuff for their baskets and making plans. We'll see what the next few weeks bring.

I'm definitely a chart person. I will likely create lots when we begin homeschooling in a year or two. I'll have to check out that website, thanks!
