Hey, y’all! Some of you have asked about our morning school routine, so I thought I’d share what works for us!
My day starts nice and early. On days that I have plans to head to the gym or walk with neighbors, I set my alarm for this time. 🙂
On the days that I don’t have plans to get sweaty, I wake up a little earlier (4:25) so I can take a shower and get ready before the kids get up. 🙂
First stop: I head to the kitchen for some coffee and breakfast
and my quiet time
…followed by work emails! Also, I make sure to send any emails that need to get to my kids’ teachers at this time as well so I don’t forget later in the day! I make lists for my day and go over what my schedule looks like!
Jackson has to wake up super early for football, so I normally take a break to make him eggs before he heads out! 🙂
While I’m doing that, I finish putting together lunches from the night before and make sure everyone’s backpacks are all set!
And, write everyone a little note just for fun!
After Jackson leaves, I usually move laundry around, finish up any last minute emails, and get dressed for the morning!
Then it’s time to wake up and feed our other two cuties! I took this picture on Friday, and their breakfast request was Sausage and Toast. haha. I like to choose my battles in parenting, so I obliged. 🙂
I always have the kids get dressed before breakfast, because I have one who gets very distracted if there are too many trips up and down the stairs in the morning. 😉 After breakfast, we brush teeth, fix hair
grab backpacks and head off to the bus stop! 🙂 I love a pretty morning sky! Don’t you? 🙂
And, then, they head off for their day!
The bus is a new thing for us this year! Last year, we used to pray for everyone’s day while we drove to school…so I am thinking we should add that into our routine before we head out to the bus! What’s your best morning routine TIP! Share in the comments! Have a great Monday! XOXO Narci
