Do you have a set homeschool schedule or are you the "see where the day takes us" kind of homeschooler?

If you do have a schedule, please share.

We have a basic framework, because I have one with special needs who really has trouble if her routine is disrupted.  We are not minute to minute though.

When the girls get up in the morning, they have breakfast, do their devotions, and shower.  Then they do their math independently, and we either eat lunch, or go to group lesson, depending what time it is.  Some days we're done by noon, and some days we have an afternoon session.

we are still in trial and error mode, but this is what our schedule looks like...we will be making some changes though as I hope to incorporate work boxes.... we basically have a staret time and then an alloted amount of time for each subject, it can go less time (if we get done), but I try not to go more time...(unless he is into it).

8:00 start with prayer and scripture study 10min

Chinese (MWF) 15min

History (MW) 30min

Art and Music (T, Th) 20min each

Writing 10min

Reading/Phonics 30min

Read Aloud 30min

Science 30min

That's the plan for now, we put it to the REAL test on the 6th of June.  lol I give myself the time limit though b/c I have found in teh past making him do something until he finishes was INEFFECTIVE!  We have less subjects on T and Th b/c we typically have co-op or other activities, and then F is a catch up day.  

the plan is to be done by noon (except for read aloud)...then we have lunch, I put the two youngest to nap, and then read aloud with my oldest before his rest time/quiet time.

It's so interesting to see your different schedules. It makes me wonder what our daily routine will look like in a year or so. For now, it seems like I'm just trying to keep up!

We are a special needs family. right now we are working with a loose schedule cause we are transitioning from Public schooling to homeschooling. to make the transition smoother we went ahead and let DS1 and DD finish the school year. They got out of school on a friday and by Sat afternoon were screaming they wanted school so we started doing lessons the following monday. Right now just kinda running with no set curriculum while we spend the summer compiling lesson plans and such for the fall. Mardels is having a sell next month on all educational stuff so we will go get the things we need from there then.

I have been wondering about schedules too since we are just starting out.  I tend to be a planner, and our state requires that the kids go the equal amount of hours as the public school, but life happens and we end up flying by the seat of our pants.  Ive been told that we can count just about everything, including church activities, so Im not to worried about the time.  With working part time its going to be interresting getting it worked out.
