This is the last week of the NBTS Blog Hop! And this week is all about SCHEDULES! This is not really something that we have followed very strictly in this house. With Landen doing school and Lexi…. well being an 17 month old and getting into WHATEVER she can we just do school whenever they are in the mood. However we do complete school everyday, even if it is in the evenings after Lexi has gone to bed. Here is the schedule we try to stick to because mornings tend to work better for us.

7:30-9:00 :Morning Routines

(Mommy gets breakfast ready, gets herself ready,

Landen gets ready for the day, Mommy gets Lexi ready, starts laundry, etc)

9:00-11:00 School (usually to 10:30 and then we get a snack)

11:00-12:00 Mommy does housework; kids play

12:00-1:00- Lunch

1:00-3:00 – Lexi Nap while Landen does some of his chores

then free play

3:00- 4:30 Outside time (as long as its not to hot or raining)

4:30- 6:00 Dinner Prep (Daddy comes home around 5:30)

6:00 Dinner

6:30- Daddy gives baths while Mommy cleans up dinner

7:00- Free play with Daddy!

8:00 bedtime

8:30- Mommy gets school work ready for next day

Works on BizzyBug projects

10:30 Evening Routine and bed

I am sure this schedule is going to change several times over this school year but right now this is what we are trying to stick with…. well of coarse we probably wont be sticking that close to it this week with Hurricane Isaac headed our way!

So after doing a couple of days of school with Landen, I decided I didn’t like how “unfun”(his words, not mine) it was. So I starting looking into different activities that we could do. I think we are going to be including Before Five In A Row to our curriculum and start lap booking. Hopefully this will help spice up the school work.

Now we just have to wait until our book order shows up! But we will continue schooling until then and make the adjustment when they arrive! Cant wait to get started!

Landen was so excited to start back to school. This was such a big difference from last school year. There were no tears, no screaming, only “mommy can we start school today?”. Today was a fairly easy day, we started with our group time saying a morning prayer and talking about the days of the weeks and months of the year. We even said our pledge to the flag.

We did some handwriting, math, and of coarse worked on our reading.

And finally we waited on Daddy to get home and took our nature walk!

We were suppose to do a nature walk but in true FL afternoon fashion it started raining! So it had to be put off to another day!

This year started off wonderfully! I could not have asked for my kids to make day 1 any better! Praying that this will continue through out our first year!
