The Daily Routine

On weekdays during the summer we have a pretty predictable schedule here at Casa KiP. I learned a long time ago that when Diva and Rage don't have a schedule things tend to run amok so I set up a summer routine that keeps them on schedule which makes getting them back into school in the Fall a little easier.

Mornings:
**wake up
**eat breakfast
**watch shows(as Rage likes to say)
**Mommy cleans, wastes time online or on the phone with family, or a combination of those things.

Afternoons:
**lunch
**school: Diva and Rage work from the Summer Bridge Books and read or get read to for 30 minutes(this process can take anywhere from 1-2 hours depending on their attitudes.
**errands and/or special trips(like the pool, the zoo, a playdate)
**no TV/Computer/or Wii for ANYONE between lunch and dinner--sometimes that's a blessing and a curse
**more cleaning, craft time, or a combo for me

Evenings:
**dinner
**still more cleaning--it never ends
**go for a walk(when our weather cooperates)
**watch shows/play Wii
**tubby/showers
**bed
