Finding balance

Some days I can't find the balance between:

* having a cleaned up, orderly home and having fun-loving, creative children who jump from one activity to the next;

* allowing my children enough autonomy to experiment and make their own decisions and keeping them and my possessions safe;

* encouraging them to find their own inner voice to determine how quickly and how well they put away their things and how quickly I would like to see things cleaned up...

So on these days, I choose to ignore these questions that I can't find answers to and just look out the window instead, thinking that we should all go outside and play for a while.

I hear my inner chatter. I'm starting to feel overwhelmed with daily "to do" tasks. Best to take some time soon to get things done so I can feel better.

About Me

My name is Jillian. I started this blog as a way to experiment with my camera and it's a become a nice little spot where I enjoy spending time. I'm a mother to 6 and 4 year old daughters, wife to a cool computer guy, and mama to a cuddly cat. We enjoy eating local, organic food; managing several food allergies; homeschooling with love; spending time in nature; and we love to take time each day to be creative. You can also find me over at From Scratch Club from time to time. Welcome!
