A Day in the Life 2019- Tuesday

A few changes that you will see from past years to this year include outside classes.  Today is an outside class day.  The Tuesday schedule alternates each week.  This week, Sawyer and Parks have class, and next week all three kids have class.

715: Wake up.  No one else is up yet.  Everyone starts moving around 730ish. Morning chores and breakfast.

830: We all came together to do our 15 minute clean up and then we head to the sunroom to read our book and prep for the day.

900: I jumped in the shower before we headed out while the kids all worked on some independent work.  When I got out, I helped as I was needed.

950: We jumped in the car to head out for class.

1030: Parks went to his writing class for an hour.

1140: Sawyer went to her writing class while Parks and I went to get lunch.

1230: Parks went into his science class while I sat with Sawyer as she ate lunch.

145: We headed home from classes and over to feed our friend’s cats.

315: We arrived home.  Sims had worked on Chemistry, Geometry, reading for history, Reading Horizons and built a volume for his climbing wall while we were gone.  At this time, everyone did their own thing for a bit.  One of them hit a wall (figuratively)and the whole afternoon dynamic changed.  Luckily, Nick was able to come home early and help out.

550: Three of us got in the car to go to practice and two stayed home. The two who stayed home, hung out and cooked dinner.

810:Practice was over and we went to get something to eat.  We got home at 9,  Watched a show and got ready for bed-dishes, showers, etc.

*not a typical day Tuesday for us.  Usually Tuesdays go fairly smoothly, but today there was a change in the schedule and change is tough for some people.  We have a family member who has a very difficult time with change and we are working very diligently as a family to work on strategies to help.

    • Yes, the classes are at different times but all at one location. Unfortunately, the location is about 30 minutes away. I guess that is one of the downsides of living in a small town. There are two teachers. One teaches writing and the other does science classes. My kids LOVE science and wanted to take more labs so I signed them up. Writing…..well, writing is a subject that my youngest was not motivated to do with me so I put him in a class and he is doing great! My middle is an excellent writer and thought a class might push her days that I couldn’t. Unfortunately, I think it has slightly backfired on me and she is not enjoying it that much. We are trying to decide what we are going to do next year.
