View of a Typical (Home) Day

Today's all about a "typical" day at home. I use the term "typical" loosely!

All the kids wake up and eat breakfast on their own schedule. The near teen and teen generally wake the latest (as is the biological norm). After they eat, they get dressed and pick up their rooms some. They have weekly chores and those get done as well. Everyone uses the laptop or Ipad to work on: math drills and or games, reading drills, and Italian flash cards.

After those basics are done, they follow what they want for the day. Today's projects have included: making birthday cheese cake for the oldest peep, making birthday cards, knocking down the wall between the kitchen and living room room (the kids helped with nail removal, drywall removal, cleanup, learned about moving electrical outlets and structural support), received a package from a home school cultural exchange that we are participating in, wrote letters to the other family, researched how to make maple candy (the package came from a family in Vermont), talked about why we don't have maple syrup (it's too hot in Florida), counted and sorted fishing lures, discussed punctuation and why it's important, helped oldest child with her Ebay account, took care of our animals (chickens, dogs, cats, turtle and bird), watched History channel, played outside, watered the garden, enjoyed dinner together, drew pictures, read for pleasure and cleaned up.

That's a pretty typical "at home" day for us!

What do your days look like?

Warmest Wishes,
