Our First Week Back as Homeschoolers

Well, we made it through our first week back into our homeschool schedule.  I can’t believe it’s already our second year.  I can honestly say that this time around was a lot easier since I kind of know what I am doing now, haha.  Last year I was slightly stressed and apprehensive, but I know this comes with the territory.  Was I still a little nervous?  Oh  yes!  This year I have a 4th grader, 1st grader, and preschooler so it has been an adventure for sure.

Here is our homeschool schedule this year:

  • 7:00 am-Wake up routine
  • 8:00 am- 11:30/12:00 Instruction (This year I have a  little jar that says “What’s Your Subject” each girl takes turns drawing a subject we will work on, they are loving this!)
  • 12:00 Lunch and Free time
  • 12:30- 3:30 Chores (they go off a color system chart on a dry erase board) Work trays, for work they didn’t get to complete during instruction, and piano practice.
  • Evenings are reserved for extra curricular activities such as piano lessons, gymnastics, and dance, etc.
  • Wednesdays, the girls will be taking classes at Homeschool Connections in Farmington Hills  Historic American Girl class, Writing, Spanish, and P.E.

We are looking forward to our schedule picking up in the weeks ahead though it will be very busy.  Hey, busy is good right?  Especially when we get to plan out our schedule the way we want, love it!

We are looking forward to a nice 4 day weekend ahead and will be ready to jump in with both feet on Tuesday! Can’t wait to share all of our adventures with you.

Happy Labor Day weekend everyone!
