As has become the tradition, I am about to embark on my version of the “Day in the Life” series done by Simple Homeschool. (Here are my past ones: 2014/2015, 2015/2016, 2016/2017, 2017/2018) Soo….I usually do this post a week or two earlier in the month, but I decided to wait a bit this year due to Sims’s concussion. Then, I totally forgot about it!
715: Wake up to a very quiet house.
730: Start breakfast and fold laundry. Sims wakes up followed by Parks and Sawyer. Everyone eats breakfast and does their morning chores.
815: Sims works on his puzzle and listens to an audio book (he has been working on puzzles to fill his time since he had his concussion).
830: 15 minutes clean up (yep, we are still doing it!. The 15 minute clean up keeps our house going).
850: We sit in the sunroom and read our read aloud book. Right now we are reading, “The Not So Great Depression” to go along with our finance/business math block. We also go over what everyone needs to work on this morning.
930: Everyone separates into their areas. Parks and I work on math and poetry. Sims works on Reading Horizons and Chemistry, Sawyer works on math and writing.
1130: Parks and Sims take the dog and their bikes out to the mountain bike trail behind our house and make a few runs. Sawyer and I edit her paper that she is working on for writing class.
1215: Everyone makes lunch and I get a quick shower.
1245: Back to work. I work with Parks on more of his writing. Sims is back to working on chemistry and Sawyer is working on Latin.
200: Everyone heads off to hang out/do independent activities. I prep dinner and walk up to the grocery store to get some items needed for dinner. Sims works on his climbing wall (he is still building it). Sawyer draws. Parks does some chores to get some money before he and a friend head out on their bikes.
400: We head out for afternoon activities: music for Sawyer and Parks. Climbing for Sims. Sawyer joins him after music.
610: Parks and I got home. I finished up dinner. Parks and I sat to eat.
720: Nick and I head out to pick up Sims and Sawyer.
815: Back home. Nick, Sims and Sawyer eat dinner. Parks rode his scooter in the driveway.
830: I just filled out my Daily Musings Journal from the Mountain Mermaid Studio and sat to type up my day. I plan to start winding down for the evening which means getting the kids to shower, putting dishes away, and watching a show or reading my book. See you tomorrow!
