Oh yea! I had forgotten about all that! I have so much to look forward to!
Julia's has a very consistent schedule. Here's what life has looked like the past couple of months:
7ish: Julia wakes up, so I wake up and nurse her. We go downstairs together and have an hour to ourselves before the other kids awake.
8:30am: I wake up the kids who aren't awake yet (Maya & Lydia, that is). We have breakfast, read Psalms & Proverbs, do our memory verse for the week and clean up.
9am: Julia goes down for her morning nap. School begins: the big kids do seatwork (math, writing, phonics) & the littles color and practice writing. I workout if they don't need supervision. If they do, I workout later or don't.
10am: Rug time: I read our history or science book or we do Latin, depending on the day.
10:30am: Chore time. I throw dinner and possibly lunch in the crock-pots and then check everyone's chores. "Kids do what you inspect, not what you expect"-- that wisdom has changed my life.
11ish: Julia wakes up & I nurse her. Some kids are still working on chores. Others are reading. Then we all play with Julia for a good long while.
Noon: Lunch time. No school during this time. This is the social hour.
1pm : Julia goes down for her afternoon nap. Kids play together while I have some blog, read, or scrapbook.
2pm I read to the kids while they fold laundry or put clean sheets on their beds.
3ish Julia wakes up and I nurse her. Daniel & Lydia take a nap. I take a nap. Maya babysits Julia.
5pm Julia goes down for her evening nap. I wake up. We all tidy the house for Daddy and set the table for dinner.
5:30 Kyle's home. He hugs all the kids then has time alone with me before dinner.
7pm Clean up from dinner. Julia wakes up & I nurse her before giving her time with Daddy.
8:30ish Julia goes to bed. The kids are all getting ready for bed.
9pm The kids got to bed. It's Mommy & Daddy time. :)
