I think responsibility is a big one and it starts young. As the Bible says...Proverbs 22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it.
Ours kids have certain responsibilities at home they are required to do, some of those are helping around the house or yard, and the other is keeping their rooms kept clean and things put away. Also taking care of ourselves, which I think is also important! Now my kids don't always do it happily, so we are working on that. I am guilty of this too at times, so this is good reminder for me too!
This week was our first week back to school! I was thankful our first day back went smoothly, with new curriculum and getting back into a routine, you have to expect there might be a few bumps, but happy to say there was not. We did have a busy week, little man had preschool orientation, it is his last year and then he will be full-time homeschooling with us! I meet up with the homeschool coop moms, so I got to meet some new moms. It was a large group, so that can be a little uncomfortable for me, but hey I am stepping out of my box this year!! I rather be in a room full of books sitting peacefully, but for now and for many years I will settle for loud and unexpected life that God has given me in this season!
