While it may feel like structure takes away freedom and spontaneity, I’ve learned it’s quite the opposite! Having a flexible schedule and daily routine allows for more freedom stability. By creating different blocks of time during the day, every member of our family knows what is expected of them. We’re able to finish chores and jobs in the morning so that we actually have time to do the more fun things we have planned.
Of course longer, all-day activities alter this block schedule, but I find that one days where we don’t have big plans, it’s so helpful to have a loose plan in place.

One per family. Please don’t share with anyone that doesn’t live in your household.
