2009-2010 Daily Schedule

As I think I've mentioned before, I work best on a general schedule. Without a schedule, I tend to be lost...time management goes out the window and I come to the end of the day feeling like I haven't gotten anything done.

My kids tend to have the same problem. Without some guidance, they would entrench themselves in one or two activities (primarily Legos and imaginary play) and disregard all other responsibilities (such as brushing one's teeth and changing out of their pajamas).

For both the kids and myself, I have come up with a guiding schedule to help us glide through the day. We have time to complete our responsibilities and still have time for some fun. The schedule is not set in stone, allowing for some flexibility.

How do you keep your family rolling along? Do you have a strict schedule, a guiding schedule, or do you just fly by the seat of your pants? I love hearing and learning about how other families structure (or don't structure) their day...so let me know.

Hi Jaynelle, I didn't know you had a blog! I loved this! You have no idea how many of these forms I've made and filled out over the years! Fill 'em out and lose them in a pile somewhere that is.

Actually, Rose, this one is working out. I printed it out and put it in a page protector on the frige. I've done that with the chore chart and school chart. The kids use wipe off markers to keep track of what they have completed for the day. I'm a visual person, so it helps me possibly more than it helps them. Glad you found me :)
