Take Great Care

Mike takes such good care of Mary Anne in Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel that she doesn't grow old.  Hannah and I talked about stewardship.  I broke it down to taking care of things.  We also did some work on her writing her name.  She often gets all the letters but not in the correct order.  She had a major attitude when she woke up and it reared its ugly head during class, so she was sent to "rest" for an hour in her room to help take care of it. 
When she got out, we had lunch and since we had talked about stewardship, I figured now is as good a time as any to add some chores to her day.  She chose to take over dusting, and she was given the responsibility of making her bed, tidying her room, and putting away her clean clothes.  And for anyone out there that thinks this is too much for five year old, I must tell you that in all it took less than one hour of her day.  And no, she will not get paid for them, because then it changes from stewardship and into a job.
