the schedule- hearth keeper 'over haul'

I sat down last week and came up with the best "schedule" I could considering I *hate* scheduling.

We started today and it is going far better than I could have dreamed! So far we are running an hour ahead and I have not napped which is HUGE since I got very little sleep last night.

Karate- Tuesday
AWANA- Wednesday

This is a Tuesday through Friday schedule. Mondays we go to fine art classes so we miss "school, lunch, quiet time" at the house. We are trying to figure out a way to add some sort of school back in on Monday. That is the only draw back we have found to full time computer schooling since the laptop died.  Maybe a trip to the library for some special reading material for those days and a report is in order. Maybe learning a handiwork skill. Whatever we do there are 6+ hours of time that needs filled for 2 of the 3 children waiting on classes.

The best comment today was  my oldest  daughter telling me "the house runs so much smoother doing it this way".  She is right. It has been a better day with less fighting, stress, mess, and me yelling. :)
