The purpose of this blog is to capture some of the high lights and low lights of just normal day to day life. Our life is loud, busy, and fast, but we love it!


Rearranging, organizing, cleaning

I have been in major overhaul mode in our house lately. Probably why I have not been finding time to blog-FB is easy because I can do it so quickly as I pass by the computer.

Over the past couple months I have rearranged the toy room, school room, and most recently totally cleaned out and reorganized the kitchen cabinets. I just love things to be efficient and work the best it can for our day to day activities. I have also felt the internal pressure to have things working in order before we take on the big task of starting Kindergarten with Chiara. Since I have started this major cleaning I have noticed a big change in what "needs" to get done around the house on a daily is a lot less! My kitchen seems so clean, the toys all have a place, and the school room seems to be staying clean. Amazing.
Funny, everyone kept telling me to stop cleaning so much and I was never going to get ahead. I am glad I did not listen. I knew that I could wrap myself around all this chaos. Yes, it meant getting rid of some things and yes I did not play with the girls all day long (some days they would not notice because all they do is play with one another), but I am finally able to breathe a little.

The choice to home school is one I am happy to make, but I know I would not have been able to concentrate on teaching if I was in a house of chaos. Here's to a clean and organized house! Yippee!
