An Atypical week (hoping to make it typical)

I'm hoping to make this typical as in fewer interuptions to our schedule.

This week, in addition to 2 doc appts 45 minutes away from here, we also have 2 kids going to the ortho to start the processes of getting braces. My fault for not starting this in the beginning(!) of summer.

I used to print check lists for all the kids. This year I am only printing them for my 3 oldest. I want to hold our master checklist. No more asking me to play because everything was done only to find out everything was NOT done. Most of those instances occured because they had done everything they could alone but failed to mention that there was something they needed hekp on. Kids are color coded (in real life too - j/k). Items in black are groups lessons with me. So far this is working much better. I did leave the 5th graders schedule on here because I give him less freedom in choosing when to get certain subjects done than the 8th grader and the 9th grader. (Hmm...TH and F look pretty much like the rest of the week except TH is History in the afternoon and F is Religion in the afternoon - that didn't come through here correctly.)
