Need To Wake Up Earlier

Since the kids and I transferred here to be with Rene last January 31, we have been continuously trying to stick to a routine and get ourselves finally settled - not an easy task.

For the past week, the day begins at 8:30 A.M. when Nacho and I open our eyes at almost the same time.  Rene and Elise have already bathed and dressed and are ready for breakfast.  They go ahead while I get Nacho and myself ready.  We all eat breakfast together for about an hour and a half - this includes running after Nacho when the sunshine outside calls out to him.

The kids make coffee for Rene and me, toast bread for all of us and get our water ready.  We then eat our breakfast while discussing everything we have to do for the day, or what happened yesterday, or what they want to happen, period.

The kids and I go back and organize ourselves.  While they watch "Go, Diego, Go!", "Nihau, Kailan" and "Sandra The Fairy Tale Detective" from 10:00 A.M. to 11:30 A.M., I do the laundry, and prepare for the day's lessons, make To Do Lists and sneak in a little internet time.

Then we homeschool!

Then lunch with or without Daddy at about 1:30 P.M.  Then back to workbooks and drills till about 3:00 P.M.  Then Nacho gets his nap, and then off to play till about 5:30 P.M.

If errands have to be made -- like going to NCCC Mall to do grocery or school supplies; or get a haircut, or buy fruits or go to the Public Library, we do it from 11:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M. with lunch in between.  By the time we get back, Nacho would have fallen asleep in my arms and will be napping for two hours.

Then dinner anywhere between 7:00 P.M. and 9:00 P.M.

Rene and Elise usually doze off at about 10:30 P.M. and Nacho and I are up till about 12 midnight.  That explains why the other two wake up first.
