I washed all the girl clothes yesterday but this time instead of putting it away, I went through and got rid of a ton. They just got two more bags of clothes from a friend and right away I went through it to see what we wanted to keep and what would go. Also, I needed to get rid of a lot that they already had like the faded, stained, outgrown, or just what was excess. Here is the pile I got rid of and that's only half of it! I had already donated another pile the day before. I'll be doing this for all the boy's clothes today. It's a big job but needs to be done because I'm tired of washing anything that is excess and mediocre. Only the best of it should be kept. Not only that but they need to have a limit of clothes. Basically each kid gets 10 shirts but with four boys that's 40 shirts. So yes, there is gonna be a lot of laundry in this house but that's why I need to keep a limit. My poor washing machine deserves a hug. I collapsed in bed at midnight last night after finishing the girl clothes.
I'm fairly new to schooling at home so I feel like I'm constantly having to watch out and experience what does and doesn't work for each kid. I want to take the time to really understand them and not rush them through their schooling. I don't care about getting them way ahead, just that they'll learn well at what we do. It doesn't matter if they are ahead or behind other kids, just that each kid GETS what they are learning.
