These are the ramblings of an eclectic and whimsical homeschooling family of eight... a little peek, if you will, inside the daily dawdlings and habits of my active and delightful family seeking to please the Lord in all we do! Hopefully our thoughts, observations, and activities will challenge you, inspire you, tickle you, cheer you, and let you know you are not the only one!

Spring Cleaning!

I'm in the process of getting ready for a new baby and it is spring... so what do you think that means for our family this week? Spring cleaning!! I love spring cleaning and I always try to do a little of it here and there throughout the year so there isn't just one time of the year where we cram in all this cleaning. This year I am being extra thorough since we are preparing for a baby too. So, this week, I have set up a spring cleaning schedule which I will share with you and we'll see how much of it we can accomplish!

For today...

~normal daily chores
~catch up on laundry
~regular school work (which will be complete by the end of this week, praise the Lord!)
~Spring Cleaning -kitchen-
...clean out, wipe out and organize all cabinets
...take everything off counters and thoroughly scrub counters
...clean out and wash out refrigerators
...wipe down all cabinet fronts
...clean oven, stovetop, microwave, refrigerator fronts and tops, and dishwasher front
...wipe down table including legs and chairs
...wipe down all baseboards and window sills
...vacuum rug
...organize the bulletin board
...clean ceiling fans and light fixtures
...clean, dust and wash all knick knacks above cabinets
...clean windows and back door inside and out where possible
...mop and wax floor
~Spring Cleaning -hall closets-
...empty and vacuum or sweep closets
...refold and sort linens
...cull out any linens we no longer need
...organize folded linens on shelves
~Once all work is complete... GO TO THE POOL!!!!! Yippee! That is motivation enough for me!

We'll see if we make it to the pool today. We are well on our way with our list. All daily chores have been done and school work is in progress. In another hour or so we should be able to tackle the first of our spring cleaning days. Stay tuned!
