As fall approached, new activities and schedules all seemed to start at once. Suddenly we had places to be at specific times and I began to stress. We’ve made a conscious effort to avoid adding significant schedule commitments to our routine. Now, it felt like every day I needed to be at a different place at a different time. Once I took the time to write down our off boat commitments and our on boat interests, our week took on a rhythm while still leaving us plenty of flexibility. I know this schedule will change as we move into colder weather but for now, our routine is working.

Monday: park days or board games in the morning, gymnastics in the afternoon

Tuesday: baking in the morning, Central library Lego club and tween club in the afternoon

Wednesday: Owen attends Parts and Crafts, Kinsley museum day

Thursday: sword fighting and home school meet up in the morning, local library in the afternoon

Friday: handcrafts and projects in the morning, dinner with friends

Weekends: split between family fun and family work

We’re fitting in plenty of lazy days, Halloween fun, and soaking up of nice weather as well.
