Our First Honeymoon

After over eight years Sweetheart and I were able to go on a honeymoon!! He had a business trip and I could go along. So it wasn't just us, but it was just adults and also so much fun!
We went to San Fransisco!
It was so amazing! And the weather was wonderful. Sunny and warm (in the mid 70s).
The hotel we stayed in was extraordinary.
The food was so delicious.
We went to China Town.
We rode the cable cars.
We went to the Fisherman's Wharf.
The locals were so helpful. Anytime we pulled out a map, someone was there asking us where we were trying to go. They gave us lots of great tips. And made sure we didn't miss any of the fun.

Blog with chore chart post

Here is the link with the awesome chore chart. The cards I used for the summer, I just found clipart for each chore at google images. Then I used whatever scrap paper I had lying around. For the cards I'm using for the school year, I used some scrap paper I have and then cut the names out in vinyl to stick on the back (as the kids don't all have the same chores). The quote I got on the Idea Door. It was this same kind of idea (and some of their clipart is what I used). But I used velcro to stick them on. Some use magnets. They also have great ideas. The Idea Door is so full of info. I spend too much time on there sometimes. Pin It

When We're Helping, We're Happy

And so is Mom!
I finally finished my chore chart I started earlier this year.
I made it for Summer to keep the kids (and myself) on task and focused.
I had everything done except the vinyl.
So last night and today I cut and placed the vinyl.

I can't remember what site had this awesome idea.
But when I find it, I'll post a link.

Since I did start this project several, it isn't in pristine condition.
The girls took a marker to it.
Plus since I'm new to this whole cut and transfer thing, the spacing isn't too great.
But for a chore chart, it's okay.

I also made the to do cards with a list. That way it would be more simple for school.
The other was getting too much for everyday while we have so many things going on.
Below is a detailed check list of what needs to be done to clean each room.
Also a day-to-day weekly list so I can see what everyone needs to do and when.
The kids can also switch days to accommodate if something comes up. Pin It
