In no way am I an expert at raising kids and I don't want to come across like I am but over the last year or two, we've really been learning (both us and Drake's mom) that we have a dude that thrives off lists. He definitely takes after his dad with some OCD tendencies and it's exciting and rewarding for him to have a list to be able to check off to know he's on track or to write down details he wants to do... really anything, he just loves it!
I did some digging a week or so ago and found some awesome printables to download to create binders for Drake this summer. It's a great collection of things he wants to do with activities, baking, special treats. It also tracks his reading log and provides fun "busy work" for him to do whether it be drawing or writing letters to family members or even math or geography worksheets. Such a win in my book because it keeps him busy!
We also started a new Accountability binder where we're tracking his chores, the family chores we expect him to be helping with, his allowance (we expect him to tithe, save and then has extra for whatever he wants) as well as a homework chart/reading log. It's been perfect for us and he's loving the time he spends keeping it updated! I just wanted to share to you mama's who might like something like this for your littles as well!
