My dd gets on the bus at 7:45-7:50 a.m. so we'd have to get her up around 6 or 6:15 in order to get anything productive done which means I'd have to get up even earlier which just isn't happening right now.

During the first part of the year, we didn't read because we shared a bus stop with another family. They moved last month, and I have to say I am enjoying being able to read again.

I get myself up at 5:30, which I know sounds obnoxious but I get dressed and ready, throw in a load of laundry (per FlyLady), and enjoy a peaceful 1/2 hour to read from TWEM lists. I start getting kids up at 6:30 which gives them plenty of time to get dressed and eat so there's no stressful rush, and we start our work at 7:30.
I guess we're fortunate to have later starting schools. It works great for us.

DS leaves at 9:15. The public school has two starting times to allow the teachers to work individually with half the class at a time during reading time, and I chose the later starting time mostly so I could work with him before school starts. I have him ready at the same time DD is so after that he has time to do math, practice piano, and play if he gets done with time to spare.

After school I work SWR into dd's spelling work, and I try to do 4 lessons of Singapore math each week. We discuss history topics as they come up at school, and talk time lines. The school uses Shurley English, so I'm pretty happy there.
