I haven’t done this in a while, so I thought it would be fun to write out what we did all day long.
6:05 a.m. My youngest (17 mo.) woke up–later than usual! We went downstairs to get his medicine and switch clothes from washer to dryer. Then upstairs to dress him and take my shower.
7:00 a.m. Everyone was downstairs for breakfast. My boys started playing checkers before eating.
8:00 a.m. Morning chores: empty dishwasher, fold clothes while listening to a couple of stories from YouNeedAStory.com, practice violin, brush teeth.
9:00 a.m. Bible Time (We read about Daniel and the angel who protected him from Leading Little Ones to God, prayed, reviewed 5 memory verses).
Copy work (sentences about Ancient Greece)
Oldest did a little of his Bible Study Fellowship lesson.
9:40 Went to library to pick up books and videos I had put on hold. Then on to the violin lessons. In the car we listened to Johnny Tremain.
10:30 Violin lessons.
11:40 Drove home (listened to Johnny Tremain again)
12:15 p.m. Lunch. My son sent an email to his grandmother.
1:15 Put two younger kids down for a nap. Phonics lessons with boys, they read to me from their Rod and Staff readers. I read to them: Aesop’s Fables (they narrated), Famous Men of Greece (about Philip of Macedonia and Alexander the Great) and Magic School Bus inside the Human Body (our unit study for March).
2:30 I tried to rest but my youngest wouldn’t sleep since he had fallen asleep in the car at 11:45. The boys played checkers and chess in their room. I took the little guy downstairs to give him a snack. My 4 yo daughter got one, too. I made some blueberry muffins.
3:30 The others came down. We straightened up the house and set up for our Small Group Bible Study. I put a pizza in the oven.
4:15 The kids ate their pizza and muffins.
4:50 We loaded in the car to head to my oldest son’s swim lesson.
5:20 My husband met us there, and the four youngest and I headed back home. I put a pizza in the oven for my husband and me.
6:15 My husband and son came home. My husband and I ate while the kids watched "Magic School Bus Human Body" on DVD. (The book was better!)
6:35 I took my little one upstairs and put him to bed.
7:00 Our Small Group Bible Study began. We had a huge group tonight (16). Our kids enjoyed having a dessert and singing hymns with everyone before my husband and I took them upstairs to bed.
10:00 My husband and I went to bed.
