So, the past couple of weeks we've been working on getting used to our new morning routine. On August 11th, we will see if the schedule on paper actually works well for our family or not. I am not a strict schedule follower, but I do like to have a routine. I thrive with structure, and I am a total mess without it. Needless to say, I am really looking forward to getting back into a more structured way of doing things. We have had a lot of fun this summer, and have enjoyed our relaxed summer projects a lot. Learning about reptiles, amphibians, and butterflies was a lot of fun! I can't wait to see what the children choose to learn about next summer!
Monday: Bedrooms (organize, dust, and vacuum)
