Sorry this is later than the others - my kids needed some much needed time with their cousins today! :)
So far we have:
7-8 Breakfast, practicing letters and morning review of the day.
8-9 Morning Task Sheet, get ready basically tidy up and morning chores.
9 is our play time. It is the only time I give them 100% of me. We play or dance or read. They get a full hour of time with me and on the weekends we try to still schedule in free time with just Mommy and Daddy.
The best part of my day is this hour where they TELL ME what we are going to play or how we are going to play. Here is one of my favorite times last Christmas -
Last year being 2009 - wow time flies!
I hardly ever take pictures during our hour because I want them to remember how much fun we had and all of the giggles we shared. Seriously our lives can get so busy and our houses can get so messy but sometimes we need to just sit back and "play" with our children. I hope I can keep this up as long as possible because it is secretly my most favorite time of day. I hardly answer the phone when we are playing because I don't want it to come to an end. Try it. Even if you can't do it every day your kids will really benefit from you dropping everything just to play with them. :) Okay off the soapbox.
