I need to write this down, cuz it seems to change every year. I like to have a general order in my morning. Everything runs smoother if everyone knows what to expect. I'm not a schedule follower really, but my kids are, so I kinda have to be. I'm sure I'll do another post like this next year and laugh at how different it is. Here goes:
Anywhere from 7-8:30 Little man and Sassy wake up. I refuse to get up before 7. So, if they do, they must go back to their rooms and sleep or play, til atleast 7. :) Then I will get up and make them breakfast. Yes, I know they should be making their own, but who needs that stress of trying to get the toast crispy enough, or putting enough butter on it so the cinn/sugar mix will melt. I don't need drama in the morning. They are creatures of habit, so they eat the same thing everyday. Right now it is plain toast with cinnamon and sugar for Little Man, and Sassy eats chocolate oatmeal. A girl after my own heart. Plain oatmeal with a handful of chocolate chips and a spoonful of peanut butter. Yummy!! I must admit, I eat a bowl also.
On a side note, I am the only person who makes breakfast right. Daddy doesn't. When I leave I have to tell him exactly how to do it. You would think oatmeal and toast, how hard can that be? But, have you met my children?
8:30-9 If I am motivated I will take a shower, otherwise it waits til after lunch.
9-9:15 Bible lesson
9:30-10:30 Language/phonics and math
10:30-11 is either reading or craft.
Yes, we are done with school within two hours. The kids don't like to waste time. They want to get it done NOW. I would love to take our time and take breaks, but they won't let me. Also, I've tried to schedule LA and math first, but they won't let me. Pick your battles, right? I don't like to rush. So that's why some days that I know we're going to be busy with shopping or running around, I declare an only math and language day. They won't do geography after, but they will do LA and math alone. Strange kids, I know.
So that is our day for our 2009/10 school year.
