Yesterday I spent every spare moment that I had planning for our upcoming school year. I thought about blogging the process, but I did not want to take the time out yesterday while I was working. I hope to finish it all up today.
I also redid our chore charts and made a new school day schedule. I was concerned at first that there was no way to fit all subjects in the day, but I think I have a workable plan. It requires that we begin at 8:00 AM. That is not a problem, except that I also crazily signed up for a marathon in December. So, I am not sure how I am going to get a long run in and still be ready for school at 8:00 AM. Thankfully, the long run is only once a week, and I can do it on Saturdays sometimes.
Our outside the home activities this year are the same as in the past.
Piano: once a week--Julie, Leah, and Clay
XC: twice a week--all children
art: 5 times each semester--Leah and Sam
Hopefully I can write or republish a series of posts regarding school planning and scheduling. What topics would you like covered? Leave me a comment, and I'll be happy to answer your questions.
