We also have a general weekly schedule.
Nate and our neighbor Brody as doing swim team Tuesday-Friday (and Saturday meets). This means he is out the door by 6:40 am every morning. Luckily he's the early riser of the family and incredibly responsible, so it's been a fun addition to the schedule (or non-schedule??).
Tuesdays are errand/appointment/clean the house days. I got my hair chopped off on our first Tuesday.
Wednesdays are summer movie days. 10 movies for $7? Yes please. Now the kids all want sit down in the front by themselves and I don't even mind. It's so nice to have everyone sit still for the entire movies this year.
And finally, Fridays are for swimming at friends' pools.
This year, the moms have been doing a much better job of getting in the pool and I think our kids kind of like it.
