Short story. It’s pretty awesome.
It’s a work in progress. One great change is our weekly Family Meeting. Still finding our groove and building habits, but a sweet reason for everyone to sit down and talk once a week. Perfect.
But the biggest impact is the checklist. The morning checklist rocks. Amazing how smoothly chores/habits are reinforced with a simple checklist.

Get dizzy. Sit down. Classic.
Get a checklist. They work.
