The white board is an indispensable tool in the Guire home. I use it on a daily basis. On school days I use it for math recitation and other school subjects. On non-school days, I post jobs, itineraries and packing lists for trips. This saves me saying the same thing fifty times. Kids can sign up for jobs listed on a first come first serve basis, so if someone wants mow front yard instead of weed, he had better get up early on Saturday and sign up!
