Glad I got these on here!
And now here is the routine I'm hoping to use once we start homeschooling. I think I'm going to start trying it now (except for the main lesson part, which we aren't doing yet). It always seems like so much trouble to stick to a routine, but really, it can't be any worse than what we're doing now. The girls are fighting so much I feel like a referee half the time. A routine could only help. So here it is.
Wake up and get dressed, before the kids if possible (Between 6:00 and 7:00)
Main lesson (for an hour, tops)
Main lesson (continued, for an hour, tops)
Play time/movie (3:30 or 4:00)
I didn't put times on all these, as you might have noticed. It was tempting, but I've tried that before and it only puts pressure on me to start or stop doing something before we're ready. We have playdates and things too, and while most of these things can still happen on those days, the timeline will be totally blown. Jordan always leaves for work about 7:45 and comes home at 5:00, so our day runs from about 8-5. That doesn't change.
