Thanks for your post...I just started preschool work with my son and am struggling to come up with a flexible schedule for him that also works for my 20m old..since we just started his attention span is very limited with school stuff still, but I know eventually I'll need something more structured so it's great to see schedule examples

Yes, quiet time is essential for sanity!! :) We love ours! It's fun to see some other young ones starting the homeschool journey. :) Thank you for sharing your day!

Well, welcome to homeschooling! It sounds like you're doing a great job! I homeschool my 4 children, grades 5, 4, 3, and K. My 3 olders have gotten to where they can do most if not all of their work independently, which is very nice. We still do electives like Science and History together. Because they can work independently, I have been able to focus on my littlest since she is learning to read. So our schedule usually goes something like this: I work with K while 5, 4, and 3 work independently. Then I spend a little bit of one-on-one time with each of the olders just to go over their work and answer any questions they have. About this time, it is lunch. After lunch we do our electives.

Happy Schooling :)

This is so interesting! I was never homeschooled... 13 years of Catholic school, baby! But in college, I met a decent number of homeschoolers. My three best guy friends, actually, were all homeschooled. The notion is so foreign to me that I enjoy learning what actually happens. Thanks, Mary! So great.

Julie,
Growing up, I also attended parochial school from first grade through high school. However, if we send our girls to Catholic school, financially I would not be able to stay home with them. With home schooling, we can give our children a Catholic education we could afford.

I always love reading how other people's days go. I need to blog my own day sometime, though of course, it never seems as interesting to me as it might be to other people.

I don't homeschool, but when I was first a nanny I started doing daily quiet time in the afternoon and I've done it with every nanny job since and now my own kids. It really is an imperative part of my day. We occasionally miss it and then the "witching hours" before dinner really are quite witchy!

Your day seems to have a great rhythm to it. I agree with you, quiet time is a life saver!
