I try to cook every night. Do I get to the kitchen to fulfill my wifely and mommy duties and make it... No. Guilty.

10. Do your children do chores? {Or will they, did they, etc}
I need to get better about this. the girls (2 oldest) are supposed to make sure the dogs bowls are filled, laundry is moved to our room for folding, put away their clothes, keep their rooms cleaned and their miscellaneous put away from the living room. I need to chart it out for them

11. Do you go to church?
I was going. I have not found the church that is 100% where we belong. The girls do enjoy the sunday school but there are things about that I am not too excited about. We move next july so I dont want to commit to one church but I do intend on visiting others with friends.

No, but I need one!

16. What do your mornings look like?
A MESS! trying to get 3 girls out the door with one super demanding little boy... kind of frightened! My afternoons will probably be even more crazy!

19. How do you manage all of the paperwork that floods into your household? {bills, school work, magazines, ads, etc}
I have piles of things EVERYWHERE! I am getting better at filtering through but I worry that I might need something so I save it... and it all piles up. I need to go through our old file cabinet. I need to do a lot of things! I think NAP time for CJ is going to be my super cleaning time....

20. How do you keep your household organized? {calendars, charts, etc}
I have a calendar that I carry with me everywhere I go. I have to. too many appointments. Too little time. I need some charts though. Any body have any templates that are good?
