I thought I’d give you a glimpse of what our typical homeschool day looks like. We used to get up much earlier, but since my youngest was born we’ve pushed our mornings back some. I get the kids up and eating breakfast around 8:00 and start school before 9:00. And yes, we mostly do school in our pjs! It’s fun!
I try to get my little guys playing together, but not distracting the girls which is a huge juggling act let me tell ya. It works better some days than others.
Grace is in Kindergarten so it only takes between a half hour to an hour to finish her seat work in the morning, but I have to be there the entire time helping her while keeping the boys happy of course!
Once Grace is finished with her kindergarten work then she plays with Little Jason. They have the best time together. She also helps with Bobby if I need her to entertain him for several minutes at a time.
If Joy works hard she can be done with her seat work in about two hours. So when she is finished, she also can run and play or help with the baby for a little while before lunch.
Faith’s work load takes all morning. We break for lunch and then have a two hour nap/quiet time. During this time the older two girls do all of their school reading and memory work. When quiet time is over, I listen to their memory work and check their reading. On a good day everyone will be completely done by 4:00!
