I wrote a post for Real Life At Home (formerly The Homeschool Classroom) three years ago entitled, 10 Ways to Make Your Homeschool Day Run Smoothly. This article sums up my thoughts about creating a rhythm to your homeschool day.
We completed our 6th day of homeschool for this school year yesterday. Fortunately, the schedule/routine that I created for us to follow is working smoothly. When Julie begins her online college courses later this month, I may have to adjust our routine slightly….it depends on how well our internet provider cooperates with the online classes! For the first few days, she may need me to help her navigate her courses, and I will have to make allowances in my routine for this. The younger children will be comfortable with their schoolwork by this time, and I am hoping that they will be able to work independently while I assist her.
Olivia will be going back to college soon. We are slowly packing her up. Thankfully I saved the master list that I typed for her last August, and now it's just a matter of putting items in boxes/bags/suitcases/ and checking them off the list. We stored a lot of her things at her school, so we do not have as much to carry this time.
My blogging will be sporadic as I adjust to the hours of marathon training, homeschooling for 7 hours a day, the children's extra activities beginning, and keeping the household running as well.
Have a great day!
