Our Homeschool Week in Review

Last week was Sabbath week, so this was our first week back. To make things extra exciting, we started a new schedule this week, too. Of course, my kids didn’t think it was so exciting. lol But they have adjusted well.

They had the hardest time with having to have their morning list done by 9. That would include getting dressed, putting clothes in the hamper, making their bed, eat breakfast, and an assigned chore or two. Then school started at 9.

Sounds great, right? Well, for them to be able to have all that done by nine, they have to be in bed by 10, especially the 11 year old. So going to sleep at midnight meant some late starts. Overall, though, the new schedule is a help. Even though they would rather start school later, they do enjoy having the majority of the afternoons free. Lots of pool time!

So now were back to school for another 6 week term. With only a couple of scheduled days off. We weren’t going to take time off from school other that our Sabbath weeks. However, July is shaping up to be busy. One week is Sabbath Week, another week, three of the kids will be going to church camp Monday through Friday. And the Olympics start. We always do an Olympics Unit Study, which this year, we are starting before the Olympics actually start. So with all that going on, I think it would be better for us to take the month of July off.

Shhhhh…….Don’t tell the kids!

I’ve posted a couple of reviews for the Old Schoolhouse Review Crew in the past week. Head on over to those posts and read what I thought about Heritage History and CapJaxMathFax. The crew recently voted on all the products reviewed this year. See all the TOS Homeschool Crew Blue Ribbon Awards.

  3. Ah, those new schedules. I think I have as hard a time with them as the kids do. I’m glad your week went well and everyone is adjusting. I’m also glad I’m not the only one who has kids up until midnight! đŸ˜‰
