We wanted to start a a series where we share how we do things on a regular basis, today we’re starting with our morning routine.
*disclaimer: We are still coming out of survival mode so this is what we’re doing, we know it’s not perfect, but it’s working for now so we’re going with it! When something works better we’ll switch things up!
Our kids get up early, anytime between 6 and 7. To get some me quiet time before the day starts I have been getting up at 6:30, reading scriptures and going for a walk. This has been helping me feel ready to take on the day and start the morning off right!
7:15/7:30- I make breakfast and make sure the oldest 4 boys are ready for school.
7:50- Take the oldest boys to school. Normally Jacob’s home so I don’t have to load up everyone, though if he has to leave early it’s not a big deal to load everyone up.
8:00- Finish getting everyone breakfast and dressed. I unload the dishwasher, move a load of laundry and spend some time with Spencer and Max working on homework or reading.
9:05- Spencer and Max leave for school. I get ready for the day and finish doing any cleaning I need to.
9:30/10- This is a fun time for me to get to play with the youngest 4. Depending on the day we might go to the park, library, or the store, or stay home and bake something, read books, and just play!
11:30/12- Start lunch so when Spencer and Max come home from kindergarten, they can eat and we can all start quiet time!
And there you have it! Let us know if you’d like to know how we do anything else and we’ll add it to the list!
