Day in the Week ~ Day Two

Welcome to "Day Two" of a peek into our homeschool days.  This day we were on the run all day long!  We still got some great homeschooling done, though.

6:30 to 7:30 ~  I woke up and got ready for the day.  I managed to blog and rotate the laundry before the kids woke up.  I cut up a watermelon and made hard boiled eggs to be turned into deviled eggs later.
My helper helped clean up the water melon rinds.
7:30 to 8:00 ~ I took DH to work while Tim watched over the kids getting up.

8:00 to 9:00 ~ Everyone had a breakfast of watermelon and toast or grain-free bread with jam.
While I continued washing all the laundry I could find for our trip to the laundromat later in the day, the kids played with Lincoln Logs and Playmobil.

9:00 to 9:45 ~ After the children did their "Just Five Things", we moved onto circle time.  During circle time, we read about Vincent Van Gogh and discussed the value of learning in our prayer book.  The kids explored the Silly Squares that we began growing the night before.  We discussed how they were similar to non-vascular plants such as lichen.  The kids also did Explode the Code.  (language arts, science)

10:00 to 10:40 ~ We went to the library.

11:00 to 12:30 ~ We went to the dentist for Little Red Riding Hood, Tim, and Mom.  While in the waiting room, all the kids did math, and occupational therapy, which today was cutting and pasting puzzles. (occupational therapy, math)

12:30 to 1:30 ~ We picked up lunch at a fast food restaurant (getting gluten-free food for Tom Sawyer) and dropped the boys off at home.  Goldilocks went to homeschool choir.

1:30 to 2:45 ~ While Goldilocks was in choir, Little Red Riding Hood and I dried and folded the laundry at the laundromat.  We also got a little grocery shopping done.

2:45 to 4:00 ~ Everyone is home, and we all had free time after chores.  The kids played on the computer, and I made phone calls.

4:00 to 4:20 ~ We listened to two chapters of On the Banks of Plum Creek(History, Literature)

After picking up DH, we had dinner and enjoyed the evening playing outdoors.
