A friend posted an article a while back of a beautiful laundry room that a mother of six had designed for herself. It was beautiful, efficient, and far more organized than I ever could even dream of being! But the first thing I thought when I saw it was that the Mom was doing all the work. And it got me reflecting on the systems we have around here, and how I (a less-than-organized mother of many) enlist the help of the kids to keep it all running smoothly.

"At least some of them are in school." It's a common response I get to people finding out the number of children I have. They figure that if I'm going to live this crazy life of having so many children, at least I get a break when they're at school for the day. So you can imagine the surprise when I go to tell them that we home school, and that all the kids are with me all day. There's no relief in sight for me!
