Schedule Scraped and Revamped!

I have shared with you all how much I am not a scheduled person. I, also, shared with you how I spent time this year making a schedule to try to help with potential meltdowns and to keep us on track. I told you that I would try the said schedule for 2 weeks and then reevaluate... Well, we have made it one week and already I can tell you, it's not gonna work! We have stuck to it a total of 1 time! With Daddy T's crazy rotating schedule, it has proven very difficult. That being said, I am revamping a week early. This is just one of the reasons why I love homeschooling. I can rearrange things until they do fit us!

Earlier today, I was blog hopping and came across this!  Meghan Carver over at First Comes Love may have just saved my schedule dilemma. 

I have to honest, I have been feeling like a huge failure in this department. I have tried, but it just doesn't work for us and our lifestyle to have a rigid schedule. Meghan reminded me that there are other options out there that will work for us. I got right to work on making us a chart!

 I pulled out my stash of construction paper, markers, scissors, and velcro tabs (gotta put my touch on it)!  Here is a picture of the finished project. I am in love with the whole idea! I don't feel so weighed down. I am also putting together boxes with the chosen work in them for each day.

 When they finish with an assignment, they simply put a check by it!  I know that Brother Bear (D) will need a little more guidance in this, but that's ok with me. He will pick up on it rather quickly!  I think that Mr Popper (C) will love this system! I'll keep you updated.

I am still working on getting up earlier. Truth be told, I have been successful with this about half of the last week. I guess half is better that not at all! 


  1. Here is my analysis of our schedule last year in January:

    1. Thank you so much for stopping by! I just visited you! I am praying for our schedule to run more smoothly now. So far, we have actually completed 3 days of school this week with the new schedule!
