One savvy blogger came up with the challenge to "Maximize Your Mornings." This means working toward getting up early enough to have workout, Bible study, and planning for the day done by the time the kids get up. Difficult, yes; impossible, no. Totally worth it!
My wonderful Mother-in-law has been maximizing her mornings for years. She gets up super early to get to work two hours before everyone else, just to get things done before the day gets busy and people need her. So diligent :)
Why can't I bring the same concept to being a stay-at-home-mom and homeschooler?
So, in the words of Charlotte Mason:
This is day two for me. I have succeeded thus far in having a workout, Bible study, planning time and breakfast before the little ladies awaken. I am working toward getting up at 5:00 AM so that I can go to the gym again and be home before The Husband leaves for work, as the gym will only be a couple of blocks from my house when I move it two weeks.
I am tired.
But, oh, so proud.
