I start it with a pepsi and dealing with the dog! Lol. Our homeschool day starts differently everyday. D picks what he wants to work on when. So it tends to change daily.

I start with a cup of coffee and a bowl of cereal.

My girls start the school day with a bible lesson.

I wish I could say I start my day with an hour at the gym or a nice jog but honestly my day starts sometime around 6:30 when my son wakes up(if I'm LUCKY it's 6:30) and then he watches Disney Junior why putter on Facebook and motivate myself to make breakfast. School starts whenever the boy and I get moving but usually around 8:30/9 AM. We usually start with one of the games on the floor or a craft project and work up to the paperwork. Our read Aloud is almost always last before we break for lunch.

Every day is different. I can only hope that I can get an hr of quiet to myself in the morning, but that usually doesn't happen, and as summer approaches closer and closer, we will be getting up earlier and earlier for those lovely morning practices for swim....ugh.... Soon I will start adding in a morning run too theoretically, but that may end up being 5 am for me to get up, and that just does not sound appealing lol

I have homeschooled for so long now our start of the day has changed so much over the years as their seasons of life change. Now my oldest is done with homeschooling but I still have my 15 year old whom I homeschool. She has a set time she must be up & dressed by. She must be starting on work around 9:30 ish. Most of her work is self work. A few times a week we sit and go over work, I help her understand stuff etc... that normally happens after lunch at what we call Table Time at the kitchen table. She does most of her work in her room at her desk she likes better. Mid week she was going to outsourced classes too for half a day. Last week is this week. Next year it will change a bit. She will have classes mid morning on Tuesday & thursdays we have to travel 30 mins away for. So she will no longer be in the mid week classes. Some mornings ( I have done this ever since they were young) at random not every day we will sit and read a verse or talk about God & pray for people together.

I have way different grades, so they do no subjects together (oldes is in 8th grade; other two are in first grade and preschool).

We DO start the day together with "Morning Meeting." Morning Meeting is a morning offering, a decade of the rosary (or going to Mass), recitation, and a saint story geared towards the younger kiddos (I read DD13 saint stories and religious books more geared to teens during her religion class).

I am a Home Schooling, Vaccinating, Non spanking, Nightmare Cuddling, Dessert Giving, Bedtime Kissing, Book Reading, Stay at Home Mom. I believe in the benefit of organized after school activities and nosy, involved parents. I believe in spoiling my children. I believe that I have seen the village and I do not want it anywhere near my children. Now for the controversial stuff:  we're Catholic, we're conservative, and we own guns (now there's no need to ask, lol).             Aimee

Ours is different all the time.  This week it's starting out with changing the water and feeding the peeps, changing their bedding and taking the crate temperature.  Then everyone washes thier hands and chips in taking care of the other animals....goats, big chickens, dogs, and cats.  Then take care of the tadpoles.

They're learning a whole load about life cycles!
