So, it's been a week since I've been back teaching. Today was the first day that I felt somewhat on my game with regards to juggling our morning routine. I've discovered that when Jordan gets up at 4:30 or 5 am, I might as well stay up and start getting ready. Last week I would go back to bed until 6, and then I'd feel absolutely exhausted (I think the extra nap only made me more sleepy). This morning I stayed up and started packing bags, making bottles, etc. I got to school early enough to make copies which is a first (I normally have to send my aide out to do it while I take attendance).
So here's our new schedule (with regards to Alex & her lessons)
6:30- up, washed and dressed
7-breakfast w/Bible reading
7:30-7:45ish (half an episode of WordGirl)
Alex, Jordan & myself School: 8-3:15 (luckily I teach at the neighborhood school and can be from my driveway and inside my class in about 15 mins.)
Home by 3:45-4 at the latiest
Snack for the kids/ listen to books on tape/Gospel music while I make dinner
Reading/Writing lesson before dinner
Math/logic after dinner
Read 2 pages from science book
More books- generally from Sonlight curriculum.
