I will share more of our schedule soon.  After the first day I can already see it needs to be tweaked so I will try to give you the schedule that I finally decide on.  Of course saying that I decide on the schedule doesn't mean that things won't change in the future as you know. :)  Especially when the new baby comes!
I also need to figure out a better game plan for my little people activities.  I posted some ideas and activities for young ones that we use now I just need figuring out the best way to implement them.  Anyone else always have great ideas and then not so great implementation??
