Let me know what you think please - am I on the right track? why/why not?
Our home ed not-so-scheduled-schedule is working well. Very well. So there's no reason in that department to change it.
I'd like a more relaxed day, at home, in the week.
Wednesday is pretty relaxed, but I spend it at my sisters - ALL day.
I'm thinking of trashing the current Friday program and putting the Science lesson on to the Thursday. Art would then go to Friday.
Friday would then be a day for catch up - if needed. And otherwise a day for art/crafting. Melinda's latch hook, my sewing, pottering around the garden, baking if desired. More of a 'fun being at home' day. Friday is also the day we go to the market every 2-3 weeks.
I think we can afford to do this, because at the rate the kids are going through their bookwork, they will be done in just 2-3 terms if I do keep Friday as a bookwork day.
I'd like to be able to set up the sewing machine from time to time and just work on one project without packing up mid project, and not be fussed about where bookwork is up to for the day, or if they've spent the day playing Lego inside or a bunch of outside play adventures...
Weekends don't lend themselves to this sort of day for us... for a bunch of reasons... they just don't.
Is this worth pursuing? or might it backfire?
