Another blog hop

and this weeks theme - "A Day in the Life Week" from over at Heart of the Matter. What follows, is a tentative schedule of our days. There are so many variables, that can make it change. So here's what a day looks like around here:

  • breakfast
  • get ready for the day
  • few chores
  • school - in random order, we change it around to keep it fun
  • possible free time if school is finished early
  • lunch
  • finish up school, if needed
  • extra activities (field trip, nature walk, fun stuff, bikes, scooters, library, etc.)
  • errands, if any are needed
  • straighten up some before dinner
  • dinner
  • family devotions
  • free time
  • bed time routine (showers, reading, etc.)
  • lights out
Do you like how I don't list times? I've found that if I try to keep strictly to a clock, some things get missed, for example, when they're really getting something and want to do more or almost finished and just need a few more minutes. That's an advantage of homeschooling, being able to give a bit more time when needed. We do have general guide lines, however, for when things should happen. For example, we try to get a bulk of our school finished during the morning hours. We also try to keep lights out around 8:30 to 9:00.

That's our life, in a nutshell!


  1. Love the list! Flexablity is one of the advantages of homeschooling!
