    I keep a calendar of all of our outside activities. We do our time4learning work around that calendar. So I guess we do have somewhat of a schedule. I marked something else because our "school work" time is not scheduled. It happens when we have time.

    our homeschooling is formal regarding the pre-professional dance school my daughter goes to, and we use that as the basis for our scheduling from there. This year we are using more than just Time4Learning for a curriculum, on an eclectic path, and taking what grabs both the kids attention best and running with it. What day we do what activity is still loose, but by the end of a week we have a completed list of activities and assignments.

    I answered this on the facebook too...I always love to hear how others plan and schedule their day! I put "no schedule" because we really don't follow one. I guess I probably really should have marked something else like Kathi. We do have other things schedule, not necessarily school things. Soccer, scouts, homeschool group and now their new fine arts program they are attending once a week...those things are scheduled. But our school isn't.

    I answered loose schedule because like the other ladies, we schedule outside events, and school fits in the middle. I realize as I write that it sounds like we put school second... we don't, school is the big reason for everything else, however, school just involves me and my child's schedule, outside events involve other people's schedules also, so we are able to be flexible.
