Ready for structure

I was going to post an ultrasound picture of our new baby this evening from my appointment I was so supposed to have this afternoon, but my appointment got rescheduled until tomorrow. I didn't find this out until I got to the doctor's office with Matt and 4 children in tow. The office had called me to let me know about rescheduling my appointment, but they called right after I had left for my appointment. So...stay tuned for a picture of magnus.

We are surviving here. I'm getting a little tired of just surviving, so the girls and I came up with a daily schedule to keep us busy throughout the day. Today was our first day with the schedule and we were gone most of the day, so we have yet to actually complete the schedule, but I'm glad that we have it for the days we are home all day. Here's a look at our schedule...

7:00 - 9:00am ~ Get ready for the day and cleanup (making beds, putting away pj's and any toys that are out)

9:00 - 10:30am ~ Computer time (Each girl gets a half hour to play...this gives me extra time to get ready and then recooperate from getting ready)

10:30 - 11:00am ~ Storytime

11:00 - 11:30am ~ Chore time (Not favored, but necessary)

11:30 - 12:00pm ~ Puzzle time

12:00 - 1:00pm ~ Lunch time

1:00 - 2:30pm ~ Movie time (gives me time to cleanup from lunch, rest, and/or get on the computer)

2:30 - 3:00pm ~ Craft time

3:00 - 3:30pm ~ Music time

3:30 - 4:00pm ~ Snack time

4:00 - 4:30pm ~ Outside time

4:30 - 5:00pm ~ Coloring time

5:00 - 5:30pm ~ Cleanup time

When I suggested making a schedule to Zoe and Emily they got VERY excited! I think they're tired of not having a routine, too.
