We just updated our schedules because we eliminated David’s naps, and we had to account for all that time. Sarah is 9, Anne Mary is 7, David is 2. You can also see their individual routines as well.
Here are our schedules, 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 (and do!) adjust any part of this to make the day go smoothly. Routine is in half hour increments unless noted.

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?
