Heart of the Matter is doing a meme on A Day in the Life of a homeschooling family, so here is my contribution. http://heartofthematteronline.com/2008/01/meme-day-in-life.html
First of all, you should know that organization, routine and consistency are not my strong points! I used to have a button when when I was a little girl that I absolutely treasured. It said, "PBPGINFWMY". I guess even then I knew I was a work in progress, and even then it was the cry of my heart: please be patient - God is not finished with me yet! I think I might need a sign in my home stating this! ANYway . . . we do have a basic daily routine, and it goes like this:
Waking - 9 am: everyone gets dressed, eats breakfast, does morning chores, check e-mail
9 - 12: schoolwork, playtime, etc. I work with each of the big kids individually while the others entertain themselves or work on their own
12 - 1: lunchtime, cleanup, play
1 - 3: Quiet time! Kids nap or have quiet time in their rooms, Mom sews, goes online, reads, etc.
3 - 6: afternoon chores - each child helps me work for 30 minutes and we get most of our housework done. Laundry, dinner prep, etc.
6 - 8:30: dinner, cleanup, baths, time with Daddy, bedtime
That's about it! Pretty simple!
