A Day in the Life…{Winter 2017}

I love these types of posts. They are my favorite to look back on, but also to read from others blogs so I thought I would share what a typical day looks like in my life right now. I documented Wednesday to share with you. Here is a peek at a typical week day for us right now…

I start my day at 5 AM.

I get ready for work (hair/makeup) and then read my devotional and Bible. Right now I am reading out of the book of John.

Next I check my blog and link-up if I need to. I also read blogs during this time.

I wake the kiddos up and Guy is always ready to go. This morning he had cereal and chocolate milk in a coffee cup.

While the kids eat breakfast I load the dishwasher with bowls and what not (because Brandon unloads the dishwasher before he leaves for work).

I make sure lunches are packed and Maddi’s basketball bag is ready to go.

We got to school around 7:15 where I looked over my lesson plans.

During morning meeting time I had the students find and circle the vowels in the message.

Next we used play-doh to practice our sight words.

I had two clementine oranges for a morning snack while the kids were at recess. They are like candy right now.

In math we are practicing counting on from five and using nickels and pennies to play a game.

When the kids went to P.E. I had a cup of coffee (thanks sister for the cute mug) and worked on report cards.

I also try to drink 3-4 of these cups of water each day at work. I love this cup and got it from my cousin for Christmas.

I also left school with a chain halter for Harold.

When I got home it was a happy mail day for me!

I worked on spelling with Guy and he had a little snack. Meanwhile Brandon was cleaning and fixing the track on our door…that is why there is a shop vac in the background.

I love coming home and vacuuming. I love to see those lines and I also swapped laundry over. My two favorite chores to get done right away.

Brandon went to pick Maddi up from basketball practice and she had pictures that day. When he got home we left for a walk. We walked our regular route but I forgot to turn on my Nike app to track our miles until one mile in. Whoops!

We came home and cooked dinner together, breakfast burritos.

I packed lunches for the next day….

….while Brandon read to the kids for their reading homework.

When the kids went to bed I painted my nails.

Brandon and I started reading from the book of Romans this night.

At 9:10 we went to bed, I worked on this blog post and responding to comments, and we watched a couple of episodes of Home Improvement before shutting our eyes at 10. I hope you had a great Wednesday. Instead of basketball practice this afternoon, we will be feeding a steer. Happy Thursday and thanks for reading!
