With our "official" start to school today I've re-written our daily routine. I don't like to call it a schedule, that sounds so rigid. Routine implies flexibility. Really, we're flexible!
This board stays on our refrigerator, offering me a guideline for our day. Really, it helps me to keep a bit of sanity. It's nothing new, I've had a "schedule" written out for us for a long time, but, I'm always (always!) changing it to accommodate whatever is going in our life.
I figured the beginning of school was the perfect time to rewrite our routine. And, while it's still very flexible (some days we have to go to class, some days we have gymnastics, errands to run, piano lessons in the afternoon, etc.) I'm going to really strive to stick to getting our school work accomplished, regardless of our other plans for the day.
I know most families naturally fall into some kind of routine for their days; does anyone else keep a written schedule, too? (or, am I the only crazy one?!) I know several other homeschoolers read this, what do you do as far as a daily routine?
