For the last 2 weeks, I have been implementing our schedule, and it’s working out pretty swimmingly. There is a time for each child to spend with me. A time for homework. A time for Bible Study. A time for exercising. And while I have had to deviate a little here and there, it’s been great!
(it also helps that JackJack is sleeping through the night)
After 8:00 am each day looks a little bit different. Not drastically different, but a little bit here and there. Monday and Wednesday are probably the most different days in the schedule.
So here is what Monday looks like.
8:00 Wordgirl goes to the busstop and the rest of us have our daily chores. Each person is given some daily chores to accomplish in 15 minutes.

I know this seems rigid, but with Daddy’s schedule never quite the same each day, we need consistancy. Even for me!
The book that I am reading is called Managers of Their Homes by Steven and Teri Maxwell.
