Schedules Schmedules…..yes, I think they add some assistance to any family. Having a schedule helps provide direction in a home and honestly, they comfort a child.
Everyone likes to know what they need to do, how to do it and…well, when they should do it.
I think that is why summer can be difficult. The unknown, the lack of direction….the inability to establish goals and then….work towards those goals, leaves idle hands.
Every year, I start with a ‘schedule’…and it changes. Life happens, children change, and anything and everything that can happen to disrupt that schedule, usually will.
In those moments, I am so thankful we homeschool….and while I use this as a guide, I have learned not to be upset or anxious if we are not doing what I had ‘scheduled’ to do at that moment.
Our Homeschool Schedule
So, without further delay, here is our schedule on paper….it will change, it will morph, it may or may not be followed in the way it is written.
However, it,will help guide our days and help provide direction and a general starting point…. In case you’re wondering, I was inspired to create a schedule like this by my friend, Cindy. She has inspired me in so many ways over the past two years…and her post about her curriculum and schedule...really convicted me (in a good way)….to get my own schedule and curriculum in order and to remember what comes first.
So, Yes, it is important to follow a schedule. And to help inspire you, I created a free printable with these quotes for you.
