Here is a music slideshow our children created which shows "Our Day".
I told them we were going to document what we do in a day and they went way beyond what I had imagined. They are such great kiddies! We are rearranging /redoing our home so pretty PLEASE ignore any messes and the lack of grout and finishing touches.
Check Out Owlhaven's Blog to see more families share a "Day in My Life".
Here is a rundown of our Wed (the day they photoed).
Wednesday's are a busy day for hubby Jim. He leaves before 7 a.m. and works all day stopping in briefly to eat (no time to even sit down) before he heads to preach at the prison downtown. He usually arrives home after 9 p.m.
We are not so much a scheduled family as a "routine" family. Our days have a definite pattern, but with 5 little ones under 5 I have hard time designating hard and fast time slots for subjects and activities.
Our 12 yo son sets his alarm for 6:15 and starts school shortly afterwards. He does BJU Home Sat, so he works independently. Our 11 yo dd also does Home Sat and works independently.
The rest of us awaken between 7 and 7:30.
I shower and by then the younger boys are usually waiting for me in our bedroom.
We dress, make beds, start laundry, feed babies, eat, brush teeth and hair.
We do our family chores.
Either my 11 yo dd or I will start the bread.. we grind our own grain which sounds really difficult, but actually consists of flipping a switch and pouring wheat berries :o).
The Babies get their morning baths.
