Six months that is. 2 posts in 2012? Oh yeah, super mom rocking life over here! Go ahead, I’ll pause while you applaud.
You are just too kind. I’m blushing here. Or maybe that’s just the result of the most recent scene of Matthew & Mary on Downton Abbey. Anyway. I have thought of a hundred post topics in the past 6 months, but I keep waiting for the time to make my blog perfect. Hello, Type A personality! So, as with my most recent “project” of reorganizing a few kitchen cabinets that I dove right into (and still have about 1/4 of it decorating my counter tops – There will be before & afters…although maybe not before of the counters; that might be crossing the line.) I’m diving right into this blog. It’ll be hit or miss, because life happens.
I thought I’d start my first “real” post with a free printable. I remember the days pre-Pinterest (do you?) when I would scour the internet for free printables. There’s nothing quite like finding the exact type of printable you’re looking for on an obscure blog. So, I’ll be your obscure. You can lean on me. Unless you didn’t shower and use deodorant. Then you’ll just have to print your free printable and be on your merry way. Okay? Good.
This printable isn’t anything too fancy. Just a simple Bible verse that I’m going to work on memorizing with my 2 & 4 year old this month. I’m adding it to our growing wall that is the current home to our magnetic chalkboard chore chart. We’re just getting used to the chart for now, and some of their “chores” are things they do daily anyway. Routine & consistency! I’m planning to do a memory verse each month with my boys beginning with this month. I can just swap out the new printable verse from the frame each month, and it’s right in our kitchen by the entrance from the garage. In other words, we’ll pass by it daily for an easy reminder and chance to practice it together!
A few disclaimers – the chore chart isn’t hung straight. The level was MIA when I went to hang it, and I was impatient. I’ll fix it. Someday. The lighting in this nook is far from ideal, and there’s really no great way to get a good shot. The adorable chore magnets are from this shop on Etsy. I love them, and I’m going to be placing another order in the near future for some duplicates of some of the chores we have. She has some other great items too. The frame is from IKEA. I love their frames! It’s a 4×6, and that’s the size I designed the printable. Isn’t it great how that worked out?!
