Typical Day and Giveaway Winners

Last Friday, Kelly over at Kelly's Korner hosted a show us your life blog carnival with the theme of your typical day.

I thought it would be fun to document what a typical day looks like for us in 2010.

This is our typical schedule on the days that Morgan goes to gymnastics in the afternoon {which is 3 days a week}. There is one day she goes later in the day and she has one day off. On those days I usually get extra cleaning done, do special projects with the kids, run errands, or do some baking.

4:45 am - alarm goes off

5:00 am - depending on lance's schedule i am either at the gym or working out at home. after my workout i usually catch up on emails, work on blog posts, check mvelopes, edit pictures, etc..

7:30 am - kids' alarms go off. i shower and the kids make their beds, clean up their rooms, and unload the dishwasher

8:00 am - breakfast, devotional time, start laundry, and i start any prep for dinner

8:30 am - we start our school day
* while the kids are doing independent work i will switch laundry, vacuum, clean bathrooms, bake, prep lunch

12:45 pm - lunch

1:30 pm - take morgan to gymnastics

2:30 pm - return home, mauryn generally falls asleep in the car and will stay asleep for her nap. landon either rests, reads, plays quietly, or helps me depending on the day. i finish cleaning, check email, work on blog or other computer tasks, sew, work on projects or bible study, read, or play games and read with landon. sometimes i will run errands during this time if i know we are home in the evening so mauryn can get to bed earlier.

4:30 pm - snack and kids play while i finish prepping dinner or doing some cleaning.

5:00 pm - leave to pick morgan up from gymnastics

6:15 pm - return home from getting morgan from gymnastics and have dinner

7:00 pm - if we are home in the evening - clean up from dinner and give the kids baths

8:00 pm - the two little ones are ready for bed and story time

8:30 pm - morgan heads off to bed to read. by this time of the night i am done. i will either catch up on stuff on the computer, read, or watch tv.

9:30 pm - bed time!

Wow. That is a great schedule! Mine is pretty similar except some of your morning things I do in the evening. I am not a morning person, but I can keep working after dark. My kids aren't nearly as independent as yours at this point, so that changes a few things in our agenda as well. Thanks for sharing!

Haha~ I learned at MOMS today that you really don't get into a routine or organized schedule until you have at least three kids. :)

We wake up around 7:30
8:00 breakfast and showers, Brin watches a couple of PBS shows, I straighten up.

9 to 1 or 2 depending on the day: MOMS group, Bible Studies, Subbing, run errands, enjoy a play date, or mommy and Brin play, I do book work for Chad, sometimes I clean

12:30 lunch

2 to 3 try to get Brin to take a nap or have quiet time. I need my down time.

4 or 5 depending if Brin will nap, get ready for dinner, play with Brin, straighten up

between 5:30 or 6:30 depending on when Chad gets home dinner

7 to 8:30 Chad and I play with Brin and clean up from dinner

8:30 to 9:00 Brinley in bed

9 to 11 (sometimes a lot later, like 1AM) Chad and I time, couples prayer time, talk time, Bible Study time, veg time, devotional time. Bed time!

I'm laughing that you sometimes when we go to bed so late, that you are waking about about 3 to 4 hours later. We are not morning people apparently.
