Day-in-The-Life Week

LauraAll Posts

I’ve missed a couple of weeks during the “Not Back to School Blog Hop” but, I do finally have a schedule that I’m happy with (I’ve been tweaking it for days). I do take these schedule-things kinda seriously, so I wanted to make sure that it works well with our internal clocks, sugar-highs, demanding Kindergarten Curriculum (just kidding there!), and such.

We have been sticking pretty closely to this schedule for several months, so I simply updated it to include school plans. It seems kinda nerdy to post a daily schedule, but it’s so strangely satisfying to be in a community of mothers who are aiming to redeem the time and accomplish their personal goals, that I’ll post away!

I’ve also tweaked our Circle Time plans, hoping to encourage the girls in the very best of things. In a day or two, I’ll write a post about what I hope our Circle Time develops in our little family.

For now, here’s a peak at our “every day”:
