So we're finishing week 2. I thought I'd give you a run down of the schedule we're settling into. This is our daily schedule, that varies in content a little from day to day, but it will give you the basic idea.
5:00 a.m. -- Dad's up, and out the door for work by 5:30 a.m. (How do guy's do that?)
6:00 a.m. -- Mom's up, morning routine (shower, dress, make bed, etc., make coffee, make mom's breakfast)
7:00 a.m. -- Mom wake's "Miner". Miner gets up, does morning stuff, gets out the door and does his morning run, cools down, showers, dresses, gets breakfast. Mom does morning computer time: emails, school preparations.
8:30 a.m. -- Mom and "Miner" meet in the family room and have separate devotions time.
9:00 a.m. -- Algebra I class together, with mom doing other stuff whenever "Miner" is working independently ("Other stuff" throughout the day is laundry, bathrooms, sweeping, preparing for next subject, etc.)
9:50 a.m. -- transition to Spanish together.
10:30 a.m. -- "Miner" takes a break (to wake up!) -- usually involves going outside to walk for ten minutes.
10:40 a.m. -- Chemistry together, then when "Miner" works independently on notebooking, etc., Mom sneaks in some "other stuff" (see above).
11:30 -- Literature reading time (currently When Worlds Collide -- Puddn'head Wilson, by Mark Twain)
noon-1:00 -- lunch break
1:00 -- "Fix-It! Grammar", followed by work on Progeny Press Introduction to Poetry, followed by Student Writing Intensives (IEW)
2:00 -- History work from Tapestry of Grace assignments and currently YWAM biography of George Washington
3:00 -- "Miner" gets some "down" time or does chores. Mom works on personal projects (currently includes studying German) and whatever else is in the schedule (this week included physical therapy and "Miner"s orthodontist appointment, actually in mid-day.)
5:00 -- Mom starts dinner, serving it at 6:00
Only one evening meeting this week, but most weeks have two evening meetings.
7:00 -- Mom is already longing for bed. Evenings vary in their content -- outing, "Miner" going driving with dad, reading, "homework", CAP studies, computer time, Boy Scout leadership matters, and sometimes mom and dad watching something together.
9:00-10:00 -- Mom and dad turn their lights out. "Miner" determines his own bedtime as long as he doesn't disturb others and can get up at 7:00 each morning.
Do you follow any framework of a schedule in your home?
