As I posted on Friday, today is the start of Project: Simplify over at simplemom.net and I'm ready to get started. I read through the grapevine that Environment Canada has announced that we are to expect three more months, yes MONTHS of winter, so I have to simulate spring in some way, so cleaning and simplifying is my method of choice!
If you're on board, and checked out the simplemom.net post on Friday, you'll know that the pre-assignment was to come up with a family statement of purpose.

You can see we borrowed bits from Tsh, but for the most part it is all us. It's all done and ready to take over to Fortino's later today and have an 8"x10" print made. I'll put it in the family room, or kitchen, as a regular reminder. If you're wondering about the missing "god" bits? The simple explanation is that I have four kids in various stages of belief and disbelief, I want to make this concept of a family statement of purpose accessible and not create any unnecessary conflict - for now.
What about you? Do you have a statement of purpose for your family? Have you considered one? Up until this point we've had a certain commonality of understanding, but nothing was concrete and written down. I don't know that this could have been done much before now but am I ever glad it's done!
Now it's time to work on the assignment. I'll post the before and after shots of my hot spot later in the week. Good luck working on yours!
