I just recently realized that I didn’t do a Day in the Life post this year. I don’t know about you, but it’s kind of fun to look back on what a day used to look like at various times. I did this on a kind of crazy day in mid-April, before we left on an impromptu vacation to Florida where we skipped our Easter Break since we were taking 2 weeks off a week later.
This is what a random homeschool day looks like with kids 8, 5 & 2 (Second Grade, Preschool/Kindergarten & Toddler).
6:30ish – The Little Man 2 got up and snuggled before going to join his sisters. I tried on some new clothes laying on my bed and then took my shower.
7:00am — We all ate breakfast. I also did my morning devotions/gratitude journal, checked my email and did a little packing.
8:00am – We started morning time (this is pretty close to the same as this term), I changed 2 diapers, kids got dressed and the rooter man came.
9:00am – We started on bookwork along with second breakfast/mid-morning snack. Miss Bookworm 8 did her Latin & Math. Miss Lady 5 did her math pages & a lesson of Foundations A. The Little Man 2 played with the math manipulatives. I also made smoothies & helped the rooter guy.
10:00am – Served tea time snack, made a phone call to the pharmacy about getting more pills for my vacay and read a few books to The Little Man 2.
10:30am – Let the littles get their screen time early so I could start on Essentials with Miss Bookworm 8. Whilst and at the same time as doing Essentials, I was warming up my lunch & fed the littles. They went downstairs to play/get into trouble. I call them the dynamic duo. After lunch was finished, I did a little research on the computer and they were all downstairs.
!!SCHOOL IS COMPLETE FOR THE DAY!!
12:00pm — I went to see what they kids were getting into downstairs and decided to do the Easter Egg hunt.
12:30pm – Half an hour later they were eating chocolate, counting coins and happily amused OUTSIDE. I did more packing and checked off my lists for our upcoming vacation.
1:00pm – Took everyone to Michael’s to check out Easter clearance.
2:00pm – Kids spent the afternoon crafting. The boy took a (rare) nap. I had a snack, read, and enjoyed the quiet. I also spent WAAAY too much time investing bible journaling on Pinterest.
5:00pm – Had Easter leftovers for dinner, cleaned up kitchen, packed kitchen stuff for trip.
5:45pm – Printed some planner sticker pages for April and went outside with the kids.
6:40pm – Watched a geology lecture from Great Courses and puttered around getting ready to go.
7:30pm – Got the kids ready for bed. Peace at last.
