Our Daily Schedule

Since we just moved to our new home, I have felt a little at a loss for keeping the boys out of trouble, and not constantly needing my attention. (Not to mention that it’s pretty difficult to unpack boxes while trying to keep said children OUT of boxes!)

So I adapted a schedule that I used when Jake was about 9 months old (potty breaks were diaper changes, meals/snacks wereΒ  “nursing”, etc), and we’ve been using it faithfully the last few weeks.Β  It’s working out better than I could have hoped for, and I’m so excited about that! πŸ™‚

“Bible story time” includes a devotional story, a Bible story, memory verse recitation, songs, and a follow-up Q&A session.
Our “planned activites” follow our monthly topic schedule, and is usually very “Moma-directed”.
We also try to fit our errands and appointments into one of the two “outdoor play” times, because they are balanced between meals! πŸ™‚

Like I said, so far this has worked out really well…
I’m praying it still will now that I’ve said that!
