Keeping a schedule

Do you ever feel like there isn't enough time in the day? You have so much to do, yet there isn't enough time to do it all? The first step you need to take is prioritize your schedule. What is most important, or has to get done right away? Get those things done first. Remember to take time out for you, and your family. Otherwise you will burn out, and the cycle will start all over again. No one can accomplish everything in one day, so give yourself a break. Allow for flexibility in your schedule. You never know when something will come up, and if you have a cram packed schedule there is no time for any ut oh's. I call it leaving ut- oh room. I have decided to share a sample of what our weekly schedule looks like. Keep in mind that it changes weekly, and sometimes it can change daily. When you look at this schedule, this is not all we do all day every day. We go to the library for programs, and play time, story time, we go to the park, or ride bikes when the weather permits. We normally have Soccer practice on Wednesdays, and games on Sunday evenings. Our soccer season has come to an end and we will be going to our last game tonight. There is also different Cub Scout activities that are not included, since it is summer, we aren't as busy with scouting.   So please don't look at this and think all we do is stay inside and clean, because that is so not the case. The reason I am sharing this sample schedule is to show you how easy is it to keep track of things you have to do, and prioritize the most important things first.
