(Observent readers may have notice Days 4 and 5 missing. I didn't post those days. I may get to them later. Maybe not. The point is to keep going with the experiment. I won't post on weekends, so there will always be that two-day gap in the numbering. You can breathe easier now. )
Today I gave the kiddos the choice to do their work right when we got home or later after I worked out. (We had to run to the store after school, so I knew they would want some downtime.) As expected, they opted for later. I told they better coopate quickly when I called them down. (Not that they don't always ask "How high?" when I say "Jump!"
Additionally, we were on a tight schedule, so I wasn't sure how that would work out. Turns out it went okay. They camee down fairly quickly when called and worked without balking. Good job, younglings.
Now for a more detailed analysis, because that's what the public wants.
1) Can't sweep in two places with one broom - had to adjust for that.
2) Kids are responding well to Zone Work.
3) Yesterday's 15 minutes went quickly.
Results: (Per yesterday's plan.) Focused on kids' bathroom & downstairs bathroom.
1) wash the rugs (Done.)
2) sweep and mop floors (Done.)
3) clean toilets (Done.)
4) sweep edge of carpet at baseboards (Not done. Broom issue.)
5) vacuum upstairs hall (Not done. Brrom issue.)
6) vacuum stairs (Not done.)
Bonus: added clean tub (Done.)
