As the title “Homemaker” entails, I spend the majority of my day dealing with life at home. This, of course, has its ups and downs. But, after a few years of experience, I pretty much have a routine in place. This includes all the usual get-ready, get-moving, clean-up activities of the typical household. But, because its summer and I have my school aged child at home, I’ve implemented field trips into our routine. I like to keep the kids busy and their minds stimulated during the long summer break. I find that they are much happier and calmer people to live with when we have things happening. And, they really look forward to them.
