When my kids were young, I learned very quickly that a schedule helped them handle snow days and other no school days.
Nothing too strict, but a little structure to the day seemed to help.
I never realized getting a puppy would help us add structure to our day, but it has. He has a little routine. There are responsibilities, like taking him out, brushing him, feeding him.
It's helped everyone get schoolwork done in the morning during his crate time. It helps get kids dressed and outside for a midday walk.
Things haven't been normal or regular around here, but the schedule has helped add some structure to our days. And as always - caring for someone other than ourselves has been helpful. This is a good reminder to make sure we're helping our neighbors and friends, too.
