Bird’s Eye View

Some people have asked about our homeschool day.  We’re very loose structurally but in general we operate on a 7-by-11, Delve-till-Twelve, Done-by-One schedule.  That means each boy has 7 things they need to get done semi-independently by 11:00, i.e math, language-arts, music, and electives, plus several personal/household responsibilities.  That gives me basically all morning to get my own act together before we gather together and spend 20 minutes praying, singing Psalms and Hymns, and reading a science-themed scripture passage.  Then I read aloud from our science text and history text for 20 minutes each.  So by the time Dad gets home for lunch at 12 we just need to eat, clean-up all our school stuff and by 1:00 everyone is free for the rest of the day.  Only the high-schoolers have additional science and history work that they usually do later at night.
