This is our biggest challenge, thus far. Admittedly, I am not an organized person and I get distracted very easily, so I want to get started right after breakfast but ds is not a morning person, so he is less than cooperative, lol. So, I'll start doing a little housework in the meantime... then next thing you know its lunch time... then the kids are busting to get out and play... then dd's nap time... then someone takes a poop so huge that they need to be hosed off in the tub... then dh needs dinner early because he has to counsel someone or teach a class... Its a viscous cycle
So at this point, what
working for us is we started our "school year" this month, and just do school work every other day, with the intent of working year round. Neither one of us thrives on a schedule, so the daily goal is to start somewhere between breakfast and lunch, the reward being playtime outside for the kids and some TV time for me.
