I love staying on schedules. I have stayed on schedules with my oldest since he was 9 months old. I notice our day goes by so much smoother when everyone knows what’s going to happen next. As I explained in my last blog, The first week of kindergarten was a little rough for us.
A couple of weeks later and we are getting into a nice routine. Anytime there is a learning experience happening and they are wanting to learn I never rush it.
After Breakfast and we clean up I let them pick a center in the school room. That is usually around 8:30. Right after that, we have circle time to read stories and do our calendar. Tuesdays and Thursdays my oldest has online classes 9-11 (break 10-10:15). He goes into another room to focus. I will go back and forth between everyone making sure they are staying on task. (Including our dogs too)
I watch my friends kids that are the age of my youngest (3).

My homeschooling routine just turned into a whole day of activities. This is how our day goes every day Mon-Fri. The weekends I change it up a little if we have something to do. I get as much cleaning done throughout the day when I have a chance. On Sundays are when I do deep cleaning and I give some chores to the boys. I also work on my weekly lesson plans for the up coming week. When 8:30 comes I am ready for some me time or hubby time if he is home from work.
I love that I get to stay home with my children. I hope you enjoyed our day. Let me know your schedule. Love ya, Mary xoxo
