This fourth and final week on the Not Back-to-School Blog Hop is about taking a glimpse of our daily lives with homeschooling. Honestly, each day is like a fingerprint, none are ever the same, but each day can be similar as the next...just know that each day is definitely a work-in-progress too!
Well, normally, so far in the last two weeks of homeschooling this year, we:
0730-0800 ~ Wake up time, clean rooms, & get dress (Group)
0800-0900 ~ Eat breakfast, clean up breakfast, throw a load in the laundry, sweep kitchen and dining area, brush teeth, and ready to start the day! (Group)
**I make sure I have a hot cup of JOE before I head up to our learning room**
0900-1100 ~ Free Play for my younger two (ages 4, almost 2) -Either they color, watch a Veggie Tale here or there, play in play room (room next to our learning room), or even 'read' books to past the time away. :)

That's about it for us!! So far I have not be able to fit in Music Study or Picture study. :'( BUT...we start with our Military Homeschool Co-Op in September that will include Art Study, P.E. (which I'll lead), and Reading Theatre...and I am also starting a Chess Club through the on-post library to start up in October. I hope that becomes a success, both my boys love playing Chess.
This fall the boys we squeeze in Soccer too for extracurricular activity and for Wednesday nights, Patch the Pirate program with our church.
Needless-to-say, we have a busy homeschool schedule and while it seems to be filled to the max, some days are shorter than most and if I (or the kids) need a break...we take it.
Well, there you have it! Thanks for stopping by and I will enjoy and I hope to find new 'pearls of wisdom' from everyone that participate this week! Thanks for stopping by.
