Planning Your Day

Schedules vs. Routines

Some people like to schedule every minute of every day, others don’t schedule anything.  Most people fall between the two extremes, scheduling some things but not others.  Here are some examples of what has worked for us different years.  It definitely changes as the kids get older and have different commitments.  Note that with routines, activities are not attached to the clock.  Things are done in sequence, but allowed to take ten minutes, or thirty.  It is particularly nice to use a routine, rather than a schedule, when there is a baby in the house.

Provided here are a few samples
