We get up early as well as tend to focus on institution lessons as well as homework in the very first half of the day (Live lessons allowing) as well as afternoons are devoted to exercise, films as well as an evening routine where bath as well as bedtime is the exact same time every day. We’re a lot more kicked back on weekends however discover the kids are happier when we stay with routine in our day.
