Chore Charts Revised

So, after a bit of time with our original chore chart, I revamped them, and have been using this chart for the last 3 weeks. I like it much better. And I will print them out each week for a couple reasons:

* We can put a new memory verse on each week (the boys get these from Pioneer Clubs that they go to on Wednesdays...)

* I can change up the chores

* It is not so overwhelming to look at one week at a glance

* We like stickers. So, an erasable chart just won't cut it. Sorry trees - you're going to have to take one for the team! If it's helping my house stay clean, and my kids to learn responsibilities, then it's worth it to me to use a new piece of paper every week!

At this point, the boys' charts are the same as each other. Elise's chart has less chores than the boys, and she has "Organize Shoe Cupboard" on hers, as well.

Hey Sarah - Great Christmas cards you made below and CONGRATS (albeit late) on your 5 km race with Scott! What a fun thing to do together. Zachary has been bugging me to run the TC 10km with him.... but I haven't done one in 3 years and ..... may not happen....

Thanks Rachel! You should go for the 10k with Zachary!! Get the rest of your family out there, too :) That's on the 10th, right? 10/10/10.... You can do it!

I told Dani we are going to do the next race, now that she's in cross-country.

also you've inspired me to get my chore chart done. I started it at the end of June and never did finish it :) I'll just add it to my to-do list this weekend :)
