We have been sick with the flu post-holidays and than we managed to get a tummy bug so our rhythm is allll over the place
Having one (when we do) is a lifesaver. Our days run much much smoother!
I try to stay home quite a bit. We have plenty to do here (reading, animals to take care of, homeschooling stuff, cooking and whatever else..) I find that when we are running around it can be really overwhelming for myself, and the kiddos. DD is allowed to have two "activities" per season and thus far it's been a drop off homeschool co-op and horseback riding (both those are two days a week..) when the coop ends she wants to try ballet and/or singing so I'm looking into that. We also set aside a day for a playdate, and one "adventure" day where we go to a museum, a park..you get the idea.
Normally we wake up and have breakfast (it's simple, always..) and than I have my coffee and we have some media time while I check my email. Kids can pick one of the shows I allow, or play Ipad for awhile. Than we get dressed, do chores, and start our day! We sort of have different points through the day where we are active and playing, or having quiet time. We cook, do chores (we have animals and a barn so kids get involved) and there's loads of time for imaginative play. We also have two main "lesson" chunks where we do activities that I have planned for the week. In the winter we are inside more, but like the other momma I do strive to get outside once a day (even if we just go on the deck to bird watch or something..) DS HATES the cold no matter how bundled he is so sometimes that doesn't happen.
Bedtime routine is simple, and I try to make it same time every night!
