"So teach us to number our days, That we may gain a heart of wisdom."
My friend asked me to blog about a typical day in our house. Here it is.
7am-mommy awakes and heads straight to the coffee pot.
7:30am-the kids begin to awake from their slumber.
8am-breakfast (typically porridge or pancakes)
8:30am-devotions with daddy. We began reading through the bible as a family over two years ago. We are currently in the middle of the book of Jeremiah!
9 to 9:30am-tidy up the house--make beds, get dressed, etc.
9:30 to 11am-"gaining a heart of wisdom." Eryn has her desk in my room where she is less distracted. She is currently perfecting her reading and math skills.
*The smaller ones are learning their letters, shapes, colors and numbers at their desk in the play room.
*I do a lot of running back and forth!
11am-snack and praying for the world. I have learned that the kids pay attention so well during snack time and so I use it to pour wisdom into their little hearts and minds. We also use this time to learn about creation, science, etc.
Free time until lunch
1:30pm to 3pm-Quiet time. Naps for those that need it. And lots and lots of reading--the kids each choose a a few books of choice and we all cuddle on the couch together.
3pm to 5pm-Outside play
5pm to 7pm-daddy time, dinner, bath and another devotional before bed.
"A man’s heart plans his way, But the Lord directs his steps."
