Last week I got all the books on the shelf.
Yesterday I made a tentative daily schedule. I do this every year, tweaking as necessary after we try the schedule out for a week or so. My method is to write down all the subjects the kids have on slips of paper, then figure out what times of day to do them. I rearrange as necessary until I find a schedule I think will work, then I make a chart with the complete schedule on it to post for everyone to see. I keep all the slips of paper in an envelope for a while, in case the tentative schedule ends up needing to be tweaked.
Today we started our year, though it's a light day because everyone was up late last night. The plan, as per usual, is to have six weeks of school completed by Labor Day weekend. I love the flexibility that comes with doing school all year!!
