Here is Anne Mary’s schedule , but we use that word kind of loosely. If I decide to let the girls sleep in a little because they are sick or were just up late the night before, I can adjust any part of this to make the day go smoothly. Routine is in half hour increments unless noted.
Anne Mary’s Routine (age 7) Gets up at 7:00 am
Breakfast and Bible In a Year with Mom
Morning routine (Morning Routine: Get dressed, PJs away, Make bed, Brush teeth, Clean bathroom, Brush Hair, Straighten Bedroom, Pet care)
Science or History
Playing with David
Catch Up Time/Character
Hands on Together with Mom
Finish School Work Assigned or Free
Afternoon Chores(Straighten House, put away all books and papers,help with Dinner)
After Dinner Routine
We do not have a night routine. Once our after dinner routine is finished, we all hang around and visit, play, act silly until David goes to bed around 9:00 PM. The we discuss our Bible in a year and character work done throughout the day, with my husband leading discussions.
Now, I realize that is pretty structured. I do fluctuate how I am scheduling our days. Right now, I am going for more structure because I have several projects going and need to make sure I am not neglecting the important duties of motherhood, wife, and home educator and being stricter helps me do that. When life is pretty relaxed, this tight of a schedule would be too much. What are your favorite scheduling tips? What does a typical day at your house look like?
