Our Crazy Schedule
Now that our children are older, homeschooling is more complicated than it used to be. When the girls were little, our schedule was very relaxed, especially when I compared it to my friends with children in traditional school.
Those days are over.
To coordinate our schedules, we use Google Calendar. Each family member has his own online calendar linked to the others. (I put the activities for the two youngest children on my calendar).
I can see the calendars with a click on my iPhone.
This makes it possible for me to keep track of my oldest daughter's community college classes, my daughters' babysitting jobs, soccer practice for three kids, choir practice, band practice, math tutoring, speech therapy, karate class, theater class, and on and on.
I really need to get a bumper sticker that says, "I don't know why they call it Homeschooling, I'm always in my car."
