The School Year Routine

Jayne does his sensory bin in his school
Yesterday was the official start of the school year for us. The loosey goosey summer approach has hit its end. I feel really good with the routine that we are starting this fall. We are organized and getting things done this year. It is the first fall that I haven't been working full time hours. My days are all spent here at home working on our home, school, and boutique, plus my daycare kiddo a couple of hours a day. I thought I would share our daily schedule. It varies slightly depending on when Adam works.

7:00a - Wake up and dressed
7:30a - Breakfast
8:00a - Calendar and worksheet time
8:30a - Activities (such as sensory bin and size sorter etc.)
9:00a - Dog walk or indoor exercise depending on weather
9:30a -Story Time
10:00a - Free play hour for Jayne, dishes, chores and cooking for me
11:00a - Lunch time
12:00p - Art time
12:30p - Story time
1:00p - Time to finish unfinished school work and do the day's chore
2:00p - Nap/resting time
3:30p - Games and songs
4:00p - Same as 10:00a
5:00p - Supper
6:00p - Outside play, but sometimes movies or inside play
7:00p - Pick up
7:30p - Bedtime routine for Jayne
8:00p - Jayne goes to is GROWN UP TIME!

It is pretty well booked and looks like a pretty strict schedule, but it does keep us focused and we are fine with routine changes when things come up. I am excited to see how this new year (lets face it, when school is involved, this is the new year) pans out. I expect many good changes, fun and educational growth to come our way!

Cats in Paris: a Book Review

In Montreal adult coloring books are everywhere. When we came back to the states a couple of months ago I found they were popular here too. I really enjoy them and am very particular about what I pick. I like a lot of fine details mixed with whimsy.

Cats in Paris by Won-Sun Jang is simply beautiful. It begins with a sort of tour of Paris, with cats of course. There is a bit of narrative in this portion as well. The art is beautiful but not quite the page covering design work I personally love. The rest of the book makes up for it though. There are patterns and intri'cat' designs. The artwork throughout is beautifully done and a joy to fill in. I am so happy to be able to while away my quiet moments with this book.

Learning the Uke

The Cat Returns is one of my favorite animated films. The end song, Kaze Ni Naru, is one of my favorite parts and gave me the longing to play the ukulele. I found just the uke for me here in Montreal. It is part musical instrument and part souvenir of Quebec. I am not terribly good at it yet, but I am starting to get this song down. Once I have it figured out, I will either attempt to learn the words so I can sing along, or move on to another great song. In the meantime, here is a great cover of the song by someone who has been playing a lot longer than I have.


Have you seen this video by Louie Giglio yet? It is really amazing to see how the universe proclaims God's glory. Take some time to watch it. God really is indescribable.
