I am craving some order in my life. Every day there is no telling what time Emma and I will wake up, what time we'll eat, what time she'll nap, etc. I feel like we're just bumbling through each day, and at the end, we've usually done some fun stuff, but haven't really accomplished anything. Often during the days, I find myself with this, "Well, now what do we do?" feeling. I know a wonderful homeschooling family with five kids, and the mom was recently telling me that every morning she gets them up at 7:00, they go to Mass at 8:00, and get back home to start school at 9:00. I don't have anything even close to that kind of organization, and I only have one kid instead of five!
So, I'm going to try this loose schedule for awhile, and see how it goes.
8:30 Wake up, get dressed, eat breakfast, throw in a load of laundry, pick up the house.
10:30 Go on a walk or to the park.
3:00 Cook something together, do a craft, or go somewhere fun.
5:00 Pick up the house.
Here are some pictures from the pumpkin patch yesterday.
