I love this theme idea I found on my friend Natalie's blog today.
She learned it at a Relief Society meeting recently.
The speaker's main idea is to have themes for each day of the week.
Natalie said it went something like this:
Monday: Work Day. Chores, things you'd do on Sat, Teach kids to clean. Then have
chips at the end and thank them for "chipping in and helping you get things in order."
I wish I had thought of this when my sons were growing up.
