Now, that summer is ending and our school year is about to start; it is imperative that we have our weekly rhythm in order. The first step in creating a rhythm that works for you & your family is to write down your typical day. I am starting here because to be honest I do not think we a have clear idea of all that we do until we put pen to paper and write it down. Many of us let our days run us; hopefully we can show you how to run your day.
The night before preparation:
- Get grains soaking
- Logan & Sophia get clothes picked out for Monday’s co-op
- Gather all supplies( backpacks, lunch pails etc. for Monday’s co-op)
- Mom have all your teaching materials together for co-op. (this is the first year I have decided to teach:)
- Coffee set to start brewing at 6am!
