It's morning, the sun is shining in through the shades and the natives are stirring.....I just slipped back inside from some awesome outside quiet by the lake.
It's time to wake up and get ready for school!
The females in the family seem to have the hardest time waking up, ESPECIALLY the teenager!
First things first, we can't function well with beds out, so they are put away. Blankets rolled up, pillows put in the back bedroom, and hideaway bed hidden back away in the couch.
Someone asked if the kids hate tearing down their beds every morning and I asked them, they said its still easier then making a bed, to roll up a blanket and a sheet, or push in an always made sofa bed.
Kids are responsible to make their own breakfast, and be dressed when school starts at 8:15. We draw chore sticks, but do not do chores until later. This has been such a hit at our house! You line up and draw a stick, get back in line and draw a second. These are your "jobs" for the whole day. This keeps things from getting boring, and keeps the kids all practiced up on the fine art of making dinner, or scrubbing a toilet.
Then its time for school! We start the day all as a family doing Prayer, Bible, Devotions, History and Latin Vocab. Then we divide off and work on the others things in age groups, but that's another post for another day.....
We play the rest of the day away, make and eat supper as a family which I adore. If I have a class I head out around bedtime, if I don't we do a family walk, and get out the bikes for a quick ride around the RV park or nearby bike trail. Sophie rides along in the basket of course!
Prayers and bedtime kisses and another amazing day is done.....we fall asleep dreaming of the adventures the next town holds. And that, my friends, is a day in the life of the RV Oilers!
