St. Joseph Novena

O St. Joseph, whose protection is so great, so strong, so prompt before the Throne of God, I place in you all my interests and desires. O St. Joseph, do assist me by your powerful intercession and obtain for me from your Divine Son all spiritual blessings through Jesus Christ, Our Lord; so that having engaged here below your Heavenly power I may offer my thanksgiving and homage to the most Loving of Fathers. O St. Joseph, I never weary contemplating you and Jesus asleep in your arms. I dare not approach while He reposes near your heart. Press Him in my name and kiss His fine Head for me, and ask Him to return the Kiss when I draw my dying breath. St. Joseph, Patron of departing souls, pray for us.

Routines/Organization: How do you make your day work?

Donna B., Peggy Gh., Lisa H., and Mary L. provided some great tips on how they stay organized and make homeschooling work.

Donna uses lesson plan books effectively. She has also found that exercise and some time to herself early in the morning and late in the evening help her keep things running smoothly. She suggested taking walks with younger children.

Peggy recommends the use of a playpen with special toys for babies and toddlers.

Lisa likes a vertical planner, as opposed to the traditional horizontal planner. She has also found that has some excellent resources for staying organized.

Mary has printed out what her children need to do in a designated binder. The children check off assignments as they are completed. She has a catch-up week when the children complete any assignments that have not been checked off.

Goal setting was also discussed as an effective means of staying organized.
