April’s Habit – Put Away What You Touch
I can’t believe we are almost half way through April and I haven’t posted our monthly habit yet! So sorry for those following along that were waiting for this!
In part, it didn’t get posted because we were gone for part of last week and when we were home we were enjoying Paul’s Spring break. The other part of why it didn’t get posted is that this months plan is very, very simple – every other month I have had a day by day plan for a story, activity or object lesson to point us towards the habit but this month, for this particular habit of put away what you touch, I thought it best to simply buckle down and focus each day on doing just that. No stories. No activities. Just do it.
It’s a habit I need to strengthen in my own life and this simple approach has been good for me as well as for the children.
There are enough every day moments where we can exercise the habit of putting away what we touch that making a specific plan seemed like entirely way more work than it would be worth while. Because simply putting things away takes way more effort than it should.
