So, in typical Sab Mad fashion, when I feel out of control what do I do? Make lists.
And to make it easier I made a chart for Caleb. Here it is:
...seems like a lot huh? I know, I think so too. But I think he can do it! He will be getting up almost an hour earlier than normal. When I say "up" let me clarify. Caleb is my child that is awake before anyone else in the house. Years ago, we trained him to stay in bed quietly until his alarm goes off at 7:45. Now, for school, he will be getting up at 7 am and he is so excited about that! Luke will still have to stay in bed, but only until 7:30.
The other thing that we are going to start working on is his quiet time with God in the morning. I will have to help him with that, so that will mean that I will have to get up earlier to have mine before I help him with his. Whew! - that is going to be a challenge, but something that I really want to make a priority. I also want us to work on learning a bible verse in the car each week together. I think that this will be made easier by the fact that he will have to learn some verses for school. It will be good for Luke and I to learn along with him.
Lofty goals for all of us, huh?!
