Why We Keep to a Routine

I was a wee bit nervous this morning.

If it were up to me, I would have spent my whole day cleaning. In fact, that was my plan.

But when Agent 004 got up from the breakfast table, she put her dirty bowl in the sink and glanced at the pictorial schedule on the refrigerator. After pointing what she had already accomplished -- "I waked up, put on clothes and ate breakfast" -- she told everyone with excitement, "after we work in the red room we go to the library! I like going to the library!"

So red room and library it was. It was one of our best red room school days in weeks, and I am so glad that our little routine told us to do it. Here are two of my my eager learners:
The homestudy went fine, by the way. Just one more social worker visit and a safety inspection by the fire department, and we will be licensed as foster parents.

Congrats on the good homestudy! I love your schedule by the way! How great that your kids can always know what to expect and what's expected of them!

I would love to hear more about the foster care process. What are they looking for in a homestudy?

Lovely, glad to hear your homestudy went well, although I am not surprised!
