Now that my oldest is turning 5, she is getting more responsibilities on her chore chart. Her list is growing beyond feeding the dog and making her bed. We are all enjoying the sway of keeping house and working together. Grandma recently taught her how to rinse dishes well and help with the vacuuming.
Beyond the three R's, beyond science and history... true home ec-- with chores, budgets and responsibilities, with pride in home and stewardship-- is a welcome subject in our school.
