We do these every few weeks. It’s basically a morning full of chores, but we try to put a fun spin on it to pass the time & keep spirits high. The boys each have a few assigned chores, and then they get to compete for a few additional tasks that involve rewards in the form of cash or video game time.
“…because you’re a part of this family.”
Our kids get it.
They know we’ve got something special going on, and they want to be a part of it. Only one of them knows that there’s Someone bigger orchestrating it all, but the rest of them will catch on someday. In the meantime, I count it all joy to watch these kids being refined. The lessons they’re living & learning now? Some adults have yet to catch onto this stuff. It is so tender, so precious.
By the time the boys are out of the house, they’ll have over a decade of homemaking experience. And when the word gets out to the ladies that these young men know how to change diapers? Good gracious!
