After years of using a Chore Board to accomplish our daily chores, our household became too large and our homeschooling too complicated to make that method work the way I wanted it to. Homeschooling was taking more time because my older children were growing up and had more intensive subjects, and homemaking was becoming more difficult because I had lots more littles who were making lots more messes.
Despite the fact that those years were sort of a blur where everyone needed me and no one was truly independent in much of anything, I managed to find a cleaning method that kept the house clean – not always tidy, and never clean all at the same time – but clean, nonetheless. I knew under the toys and paper, the house was truly clean. That was all that mattered during those years.
