Life Hack: Getting Outside in Winter!
Hey hey hey!
We had our first snow fall on Sunday and the kids were so excited. Man, kids and their enthusiasm is contagious!
Anyway, I thought I would share our method of operations when it comes to getting out the door for school (we actually did this even before some of them were in school, but they learned the drill!). Like some of my other tips, it's super simple, but I think it is enormously effective.
Above you see, well, Keziah lying in front of a heater in the morning because the house was cool (and also our green Hot Box), but you also see that our "entry-way" is extremely cramped and small. If all three kids were jammed up into that small space, all trying to get their things out of that front closet, it would be mayhem!
So, while the kids are eating breakfast, I set out their things on the floor where there is a bit more room. Having it all out means I know if it's all there (no last minute, "where's my mittens!!!"), and it also gives them each room to get ready without being in each others way and fighting.
The only thing I leave at the front is their boots because I don't want mud/wet on the kitchen floor!
And that's it! If your entry-way is small, but your living room is big, set their winter stuff in their, or in their bedroom, wherever there is room is a good place!
So, I hope you are enjoying the snow-if it is snowy where you are!
In the next few weeks I hope/plan to post a lot of freezable Christmas cookie and square recipes, as well as some gift ideas to get you ready for Christmas! It's not too far off!
