Fall Scheduling & We Need a New Car

In June I had made summer schedule, but we never seem to keep summer schedules. We just relax and have fun! I do have story time with the younger kids, and Bible and prayer time on most days with my older kids. Then the boys and I do jobs around the house. Other than that we basically do what we want to. This week has been busy, though. Mostly bringing kids to friend's houses, pool parties, play practices, and band and skit practice with the youth group. I also took the dog to get her shots, went grocery shopping, to the library, post office, ect.

Yesterday and today I've been staying home all day. Actually, we don't have a car right now (I borrowed my mom's Jeep last week) and we don't have the money to buy one. We only had one old car and our mechanic told us that it's needs so much work it's not worth putting the money into.

This is what our fall schedule looks like at this point.

Sophie and I wake up get ready for the day, clean the bathroom, get the laundry going, and start breakfast.
Boys wake up, do morning routine, then cleaning in their assigned zones.
Bible and prayer with the older boys, Sophie and Christian play with toys or draw/color, snack
I teach KONOS unit studies to Sophie (K4) and Christian (4th) downstairs, while Isaiah (8th) and Charles (11th) work independently upstairs. Isaiah- Language Arts, History/geography, and silent reading. Charles-Algebra 2, and Language Arts, Bible and History.
Lunch and outside break
I help Isaiah with math and science. Christian does Math and Grammar online with Time 4 Learning. Sophie plays independently with playdough, math blocks, educational toys, ect. After I help Isaiah, I teach Sophie phonics/reading and Math. Charles studies Chemistry and Spanish. Two days a week Charles goes to a friends house to do Chemistry experiments and to get some Algebra tutoring. On Thursdays he takes a 2 hr. American lit class.
Free time for everyone
Dinner and clean-up
Wednesday AWANA club for Sophie and Christian
Not sure what extra activities/sports the older boys will be doing yet
Charles- computer programing C++

  5. Can't wait to see how God blesses you guys regarding the car. Just never know what He'll do. :)

    I always love reading other's schedules. When are you guys starting school?

  6. Amy, we might go look for a new vehicle tonight. Thanks for the encouragement.

    We always start school the first week of September. But I might wait till the second week this year. Not sure.
