We started school a few weeks ago and we are loving the new year. I do want to finish the 36 week course in 36 weeks, though. That doesn’t leave a whole lot of room for vacation, sick days and family visits. So, I have a plan.
I have looked ahead at the daily schedule and made minor adjustments to the assignments to turn each five day week into a four day week. One day we might double the Bible and poetry assignment. Another day we will double the read-aloud. The next we will double up on History. No single day will be overwhelming, but just 20-30 minutes longer than usual—which will be the new usual.
With this plan, we should gain a day for each week of school we do, totaling a good 7 weeks in the end. This should be enough wiggle room to accommodate most of our yearly distractions from the routine of school.
We will see how a possible move plays out when the time comes, but I do think this little plan should be a help in getting me near my 36-week school year goal. I make my plans, but He directs my steps.
