It seems that my life is consumed with making schedules lately. I will try one schedule and then if it doesn’t work then I am off to make another one. I am forever searching the internet looking for blogs where someone has posted their homeschool schedule. But it is more than just a school schedule, it’s a schedule for our life. I have been the one who has been slacking lately and I need to get things back in order before I loose what is left of my sanity. For those who know me, you know that I don’t have much left to loose. I think without a schedule my kids become confused about what to do and when to do it. School begins to suffer and so does the house. I refuse to give up. I will conquer this scheduling monster. I WILL!!!!
Another problem I have is getting the girls up in the morning. They are both night owls. I was too when I was their age. They go to bed around 9:00, but they have the hardest time falling asleep. We allow them to watch select dvd’s to help them fall asleep quicker, but it seems like as they get older they are having more and more trouble falling asleep. They are like Dh, they need to listen to something to help them fall asleep. I have tried giving them classical cd’s to listen to, but they don’t seem to help. They sure help me.
Another area that I feel we need to work on is food. We have been working on cutting out junk food for sometime now. We do like to bake an occasional treat every once in a while though. I am more or less talking about chips, snack cakes, etc. I know that the sugar rush at the end of the day doesn’t help sleeping matters much. I am happy to say though, that our girls don’t really ask for junk food. When we go to the grocery store they want fruit. It’s just when they go to Grandma’s that they think they can take a ride on the Sugar Express. 🙂
Now back to my original topic. Do you have a schedule for you and your family? If so I would love for you to post a link to it.
