With our new school plans (see post below), I have been deeply convicted and fired up to create an intentional atmosphere around here. The kids will be in school more than they will be home during waking hours, and now that they aren't getting spiritual enrichment at school, it is all up to....ME (and my husband of course!)
There are some key times around here that I want to fill my kids up with encouragement, inspiration, and just good old fashion love!
Sunday Night- We have actually done this inconsistently this past year, but my husband has crafted an awesome agenda and goal sheet for FAMILY MEETINGS. This will be a way to kick off the week with goals set, expectations discussed, and any worries or issues laid out in a safe place for everyone.
School Drive- We have always used our drive to school as a time of PRAYER...even if it's just a thirty second one as we pull in the parking lot. This will not be set aside this year, and I hope that we can continue this all the way through to graduation. ;)
Dinner Time- We will also continue going through HI/LO's at the dinner table. This is so important to give the kids a chance to review their day and give Mom and Dad a peek at what they are excited about or struggling with.
Praying that this school year goes smooth AT school, and AT home. So much on the horizon!
Do you have any fun ideas to build into your kids?
