Today is Tuesday Talk where once a month, I link up with Ashley and Erika who host this fun little blog link up. Every month, we chit chat about anything and everything. Today’s topic is School Routines, but after talking to my friend Whitney I realized that I should share my routine for the whole day.
7:15 am Sarah’s OK to Wake! clock turns on. She gets dressed and does her hair (she’s currently into brushing her hair and spraying a detangler and putting on some accessory in the mornings).
7:30 am My alarm goes off, hubby wakes up Jacob and we all head downstairs.
Hubby get breakfast started while I complete their lunches (I make most of it the night before). I unload dishwasher and then meet kids in car.
8:00 am Out of the house (still in my pj’s) and off to school.
8:20 am Back home and ready for a cup of coffee.
8:30 am Jacob and I watch a show. I check email and social media.
9:30 am We go upstairs, get dressed and get ready for the day.
10:00 am I make breakfast or meet a friend for breakfast.
10:30 am Adventure with Jacob (library, play date, play place, etc)
12:30 pm Lunch
1ish Back home for nap
1:30 I plan dinner, clean up toys, do a load of wash, email/blog, and/or watch show.
2:45 pm Pick up Sarah
3:00 pm Homework, snack, go through backpack.
4:00 pm Outside play with neighbors
5:00 pm Start dinner prep. Kids watch show or play independently.
6:00 pm Dinner with the family
6:45 pm If we have time and the weather is nice we take a walk around the neighborhood. In the fall we feed the neighborhood bunnies our leftover veggies.
7:00 pm Bath and books
7:30 pm Books, prayer, Jacob goes to bed
8:00 pm Sarah reads (part of homework), prayers and Sarah goes to bed
8:30 pm and on Clean up kitchen, make lunch, hubby time, blog, etc.
A few notes: If you have been reading my blog for a while, you will realize we are not morning people. So we rather sleep an extra 30 minutes then hang out in the am.
I don’t have a bunch of alarms that go off all day. This routine is simply a timeline for when we do things. Kids get sick, we have a school event, sports, family is in town or a kid doesn’t nap. Life happens and we just roll with it, but this way we know what to expect.
What does your routine look like? What do you do differently? I’d love to know. Please comment below.
