Enjoy our morning prayer:

The prayer above is our family prayer I wanted to share with you. We made it up ourselves! It's so simple and gets our kids to recognize that when we say this, it's time to get to it! We sometimes exaggerate to make it a morning stretch.
Dear God [hands folded]
Help me spend today [hands open, giving]
with a Smile on my face [point to a smile]
Love in my heart [hands together over heart]
Joy in his grace [hands up in the air]
and my thinking cap on all day. [Hands on head]
Amen. [Hands folded]

Magnet Day Planner by Melissa

Check out your wholesale store (Sam's Club or Costco) for an inexpensive magnetic dry erase board. Use stickers to add days of the week, and black tape (or permanent marker) to make dividers. Print your time brackets and classes onto cardstock, business card or magnet paper. Put those onto make-your-own magnet business cards and cut out. Add photos of family members to magnet paper and cut out to draw attention to certain people's activities, or just for personalization. Write in the rest with dry erase markers.
